A component for fixing an element's width to the current breakpoint.

Basic usage

Using the container

The container className sets the max-width of an element to match the min-width of the current breakpoint. This is useful if you'd prefer to design for a fixed set of screen sizes instead of trying to accommodate a fully fluid viewport.

Note that unlike containers you might have used in other frameworks, Tailwind's container does not center itself automatically and does not have any built-in horizontal padding.

To center a container, use the mx-auto utility:

<div className="container **mx-auto**">
  <!-- ... -->

To add horizontal padding, use the px-{size} utilities:

<div className="container mx-auto **px-4**">
  <!-- ... -->

If you'd like to center your containers by default or include default horizontal padding, see the customization options below.
