Responsive

To control the list style type of a list element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing list utility. For example, use .md:list-disc to apply the .list-disc utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

By default Tailwind provides three utilities for the most common list style types. You change, add, or remove these by editing the theme.listStyleType section of your Tailwind config.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
listStyleType: {
      none: 'none',
-     disc: 'disc',
-     decimal: 'decimal',
+     square: 'square',
+     roman: 'upper-roman',
}
}
}

Responsive and pseudo-class variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for list style type utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the list style type utilities by modifying the listStyleType property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
variants: {
    // ...
-   listStyleType: ['responsive'],
+   listStyleType: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus'],
}
}

Disabling

If you don't plan to use the list style type utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the listStyleType property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
corePlugins: {
    // ...
+   listStyleType: false,
}
}
