<div class="flex justify-start bg-gray-200">
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

Center

Use .justify-center to justify items along the center of the flex container's main axis:

1
2
3
<div class="flex justify-center bg-gray-200">
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

End

Use .justify-end to justify items against the end of the flex container's main axis:

1
2
3
<div class="flex justify-end bg-gray-200">
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

Space between

Use .justify-between to justify items along the flex container's main axis such that there is an equal amount of space between each item:

1
2
3
<div class="flex justify-between bg-gray-200">
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

Space around

Use .justify-around to justify items along the flex container's main axis such that there is an equal amount of space around each item:

1
2
3
<div class="flex justify-around bg-gray-200">
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
  <div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

Responsive

To justify flex items at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing utility class. For example, use md:justify-between to apply the justify-between utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Responsive and pseudo-class variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for justify-content utilities.

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

Disabling

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

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