  <div class="text-center py-2">2</div>
  <div class="text-center py-2">3</div>
</div>

Reversing children order

If your elements are in reverse order (using say flex-row-reverse or flex-col-reverse), use the divide-x-reverse or divide-y-reverse utilities to ensure the border is added to the correct side of each element.

<div class="flex flex-col-reverse divide-y divide-y-reverse divide-gray-400">
  <div class="text-center py-2">1</div>
  <div class="text-center py-2">2</div>
  <div class="text-center py-2">3</div>
</div>

Responsive

To control the borders between elements at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing divide utility. For example, adding the class md:divide-x-8 to an element would apply the divide-x-8 utility at medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Divide width scale

The divide width scale inherits its values from the borderWidth scale by default, so if you'd like to customize your values for both border width and divide width together, use the theme.borderWidth section of your tailwind.config.js file.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
borderWidth: {
      default: '1px',
      '0': '0',
      '2': '2px',
+     '3': '3px',
      '4': '4px',
+     '6': '6px',
-     '8': '8px',
}
}
}

To customize only the divide width values, use the theme.divideWidth section of your tailwind.config.js file.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
divideWidth: {
      default: '1px',
      '0': '0',
      '2': '2px',
+     '3': '3px',
      '4': '4px',
+     '6': '6px',
-     '8': '8px',
}
}
}

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

Responsive and pseudo-class variants

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

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

Disabling

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

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