Tailwind CSS Place Items
  • Last Updated : 11 Feb, 2021

This class accepts lots of values in tailwind CSS. It is the alternative to the CSS Place Items property. This class is used for controlling how items are justified and aligned at the same time. So the place-items class can hold the value of the align-items and justify-items class values.

Place Items Classes:

  • place-items-auto 
  • place-items-start 
  • place-items-end 
  • place-items-center 
  • place-items-stretch 

place-items-auto: If the items have no parents then this class is used that defines the absolute positioned.

Syntax:

<element class="place-items-auto">...</element>

Example:
