Use .content-start to pack lines in a flex container against the start of the cross axis:

1
2
3
4
5
<div class="flex content-start flex-wrap bg-gray-200 h-48">
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">4</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">5</div>
</div>
</div>

# Center

Use .content-center to pack lines in a flex container in the center of the cross axis:

1
2
3
4
5
<div class="flex content-center flex-wrap bg-gray-200 h-48">
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">4</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">5</div>
</div>
</div>

# End

Use .content-end to pack lines in a flex container against the end of the cross axis:

1
2
3
4
5
<div class="flex content-end flex-wrap bg-gray-200 h-48">
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">4</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">5</div>
</div>
</div>

# Space between

Use .content-between to distribute lines in a flex container such that there is an equal amount of space between each line:

1
2
3
4
5
<div class="flex content-between flex-wrap bg-gray-200 h-48">
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">4</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">5</div>
</div>
</div>

# Space around

Use .content-around to distribute lines in a flex container such that there is an equal amount of space around each line:

1
2
3
4
5
<div class="flex content-around flex-wrap bg-gray-200 h-48">
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">1</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">2</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">3</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">4</div>
</div>
<div class="w-1/3 p-2">
<div class="text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 p-2">5</div>
</div>

# Responsive

To control the alignment of flex content at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing utility class. For example, use md:content-around to apply the content-around utility at only medium screen sizes and above.
