Responsive

To control the letter spacing of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing letter spacing utility. For example, use md:tracking-wide to apply the tracking-wide utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Responsive and State Variants

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

You can control which variants are generated for the tracking utilities by modifying the tracking property in the modules section of your Tailwind config file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

{
// ...
modules: {
    // ...
-   tracking: ['responsive'],
+   tracking: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus', 'active', 'group-hover'],
}
}

Disabling

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

{
// ...
modules: {
    // ...
-   tracking: ['responsive'],
+   tracking: false,
}
}
