Basic usage

Rotating the backdrop’s hue

Use the backdrop-hue-rotate-* utilities to rotate the hue of an element’s backdrop.




<div class="backdrop-hue-rotate-90 bg-white/30 ...">
  <!-- ... -->
<div class="backdrop-hue-rotate-180 bg-white/30 ...">
  <!-- ... -->
<div class="-backdrop-hue-rotate-60 bg-white/30 ...">
  <!-- ... -->

Using negative values

To use a negative backdrop hue rotate value, prefix the class name with a dash to convert it to a negative value.

<div class="-backdrop-hue-rotate-60">
  <!-- ... -->

Removing backdrop filters

To remove all of the backdrop filters on an element at once, use the backdrop-filter-none utility:

<div class="backdrop-blur-md backdrop-hue-rotate-180 md:backdrop-filter-none">
  <!-- ... -->

This can be useful when you want to remove backdrop filters conditionally, such as on hover or at a particular breakpoint.

Applying conditionally

Hover, focus, and other states

Tailwind lets you conditionally apply utility classes in different states using variant modifiers. For example, use hover:backdrop-hue-rotate-60 to only apply the backdrop-hue-rotate-60 utility on hover.

<div class="backdrop-hue-rotate-15 hover:backdrop-hue-rotate-60">
  <!-- ... -->

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:backdrop-hue-rotate-60 to apply the backdrop-hue-rotate-60 utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="backdrop-hue-rotate-15 md:backdrop-hue-rotate-60">
  <!-- ... -->

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

Using custom values

Customizing your theme

By default, Tailwind includes a handful of general purpose backdrop-hue-rotate utilities. You can customize these values by editing theme.backdropHueRotate or theme.extend.backdropHueRotate in your tailwind.config.js file.

module.exports = {
  theme: {
    extend: {
      backdropHueRotate: {
        '-270': '-270deg',
        270: '270deg',

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

Arbitrary values

If you need to use a one-off backdrop-hue-rotate 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="backdrop-hue-rotate-[270deg]">
  <!-- ... -->
