Usage

Control the scale of an element by first enabling transforms with the transform utility, then specifying the scale using the scale-{percentage}, scale-x-{percentage}, and scale-y-{percentage} utilities.

<img class="transform scale-75 ...">
<img class="transform scale-100 ...">
<img class="transform scale-125 ...">
<img class="transform scale-150 ...">

Note that because Tailwind implements transforms using CSS custom properties, the transform utilities are not supported in older browsers like IE11. If you need transforms for your project and need to support older browsers, add your own utilities or other custom CSS.

Responsive

To control the scale of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing scale utility. For example, use md:scale-75 to apply the scale-75 utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

For more information about Tailwind's responsive design features, check out the Responsive Design documentation.

Customizing

Scale values

By default Tailwind provides ten general purpose scale utilities. You change, add, or remove these by editing the theme.scale section of your Tailwind config.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
scale: {
      '0': '0',
+     '25': '.25',
      '50': '.5',
      '75': '.75',
      '90': '.9',
-     '95': '.95',
      '100': '1',
-     '105': '1.05',
-     '110': '1.1',
      '125': '1.25',
      '150': '1.5',
+     '200': '2',
}
}
}

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

Responsive and pseudo-class variants

By default, only responsive, hover and focus variants are generated for scale utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the scale utilities by modifying the scale property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate active and group-hover variants:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
variants: {
    // ...
-   scale: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus'],
+   scale: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus', 'active', 'group-hover'],
}
}

Disabling

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

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