Basic usage

Ordering flex and grid items

Use order-{order} to render flex and grid items in a different order than they appear in the DOM.

<div class="flex justify-between ...">
  <div class="order-last">01</div>

Using negative values

To use a negative order value, prefix the class name with a dash to convert it to a negative value.

<div class="-order-1">
  <!-- ... -->

Applying conditionally

Hover, focus, and other states

Tailwind lets you conditionally apply utility classes in different states using variant modifiers. For example, use hover:order-last to only apply the order-last utility on hover.

<div class="order-first hover:order-last">
  <!-- ... -->

For a complete list of all available state modifiers, check out the Hover, Focus, & Other States documentation.

Breakpoints and media queries

You can also use variant modifiers to target media queries like responsive breakpoints, dark mode, prefers-reduced-motion, and more. For example, use md:order-last to apply the order-last utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="order-first md:order-last">
  <!-- ... -->

To learn more, check out the documentation on Responsive Design, Dark Mode and other media query modifiers.

Using custom values

Customizing your theme

By default, Tailwind provides utilities for order-first, order-last, order-none, and an order-{number} utility for the numbers 1 through 12. You can customize these values by editing theme.order or theme.extend.order in your tailwind.config.js file.

module.exports = {
  theme: {
    extend: {
      order: {
        '13': '13'

Learn more about customizing the default theme in the theme customization documentation.

Arbitrary values

If you need to use a one-off order value that doesn’t make sense to include in your theme, use square brackets to generate a property on the fly using any arbitrary value.

<div class="order-[13]">
  <!-- ... -->

Learn more about arbitrary value support in the arbitrary values documentation.
