Basic usage

Setting the minimum width

Set the minimum width of an element using the min-w-{width} utilities.

<span class="min-w-full ...">
  <!-- ... -->

Applying conditionally

Hover, focus, and other states

Tailwind lets you conditionally apply utility classes in different states using variant modifiers. For example, use hover:min-w-0 to only apply the min-w-0 utility on hover.

<div class="w-24 min-w-full hover:min-w-0">
  <!-- ... -->

For a complete list of all available state modifiers, check out the Hover, Focus, & Other States documentation.

Breakpoints and media queries

You can also use variant modifiers to target media queries like responsive breakpoints, dark mode, prefers-reduced-motion, and more. For example, use md:min-w-0 to apply the min-w-0 utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="w-24 min-w-full md:min-w-0">
  <!-- ... -->

To learn more, check out the documentation on Responsive Design, Dark Mode and other media query modifiers.

Using custom values

Customizing your theme

You can customize your min-width scale by editing theme.minWidth or theme.extend.minWidth in your tailwind.config.js file.

module.exports = {
  theme: {
    minWidth: {
      '1/2': '50%',

Learn more about customizing the default theme in the theme customization documentation.

Arbitrary values

If you need to use a one-off min-width value that doesn’t make sense to include in your theme, use square brackets to generate a property on the fly using any arbitrary value.

<div class="min-w-[50%]">
  <!-- ... -->

Learn more about arbitrary value support in the arbitrary values documentation.
