# Stretch

Use .items-stretch to stretch items to fill the flex container’s cross axis:

<div class="flex items-stretch bg-gray-200 h-24">
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

# Start

Use .items-start to align items to the start of the flex container’s cross axis:

1
2

<div class="flex items-start bg-gray-200 h-24">
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

# Center

Use .items-center to align items along the center of the flex container’s cross axis:

1
2
3
<div class="flex items-center bg-gray-200 h-24">
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

# End

Use .items-end to align items to the end of the flex container’s cross axis:

1
2

<div class="flex items-end bg-gray-200 h-24">
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">1</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">2</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2">3</div>
</div>

# Baseline

Use .items-baseline to align items along the flex container’s cross axis such that all of their baselines align:

1
2
3
<div class="flex items-baseline bg-gray-200 h-24">
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2 text-base">1</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2 text-2xl">2</div>
<div class="flex-1 text-gray-700 text-center bg-gray-400 px-4 py-2 m-2 text-lg">3</div>
</div>

# Responsive

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