Height Scale

By default Tailwind provides 19 fixed height utilities, a 100% height utility, an auto utility, and a utility for setting the height of an element to match the viewport height. You change, add, or remove these by editing the theme.height section of your Tailwind config.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
height: theme => ({
      'auto': 'auto',
+     '72': '18rem',
+     '1/2': '50%',
      'full': '100%',
+     'screen-1/2': '50vw'
-     'screen': '100vw'
+     'screen-full': '100vw'

Responsive and State Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for height utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the height utilities by modifying the height 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: {
    // ...
-   height: ['responsive'],
+   height: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus'],


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

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