Responsive

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

Customizing

Responsive and State Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for text sizing utilities.

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

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

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

Disabling

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

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