Responsive

To position an object only at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing object position utility. For example, adding the class md:object-top to an element would apply the object-top utility at medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Object Positioning

By default Tailwind provides nine object position utilities. You can change, add, or remove these by editing the theme.objectPosition section of your Tailwind config.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
objectPosition: {
      bottom: 'bottom',
      center: 'center',
      left: 'left',
-     'left-bottom': 'left bottom',
-     'left-top': 'left top',
      right: 'right',
      'right-bottom': 'right bottom',
      'right-top': 'right top',
      top: 'top',
+     'center-bottom': 'center bottom'
+     'center-top': 'center top',
}
}
}

Responsive and State Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for object position utilities.

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

Disabling

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

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