Customizing

Max-height scale

Customize Tailwind's default max-height scale in the theme.maxHeight section of your tailwind.config.js file.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
maxHeight: {
+     '0': '0',
+     '1/4': '25%',
+     '1/2': '50%',
+     '3/4': '75%',
+     'full': '100%',
}
}
}

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 max-height utilities.

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

Disabling

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

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