Using CSS Transitions with TailwindCSS v1.2

under TailwindCSS

With the release of TailwindCSS 1.2, you can now create CSS Grids with Tailwind!

Here's a quick example from the Tailwind docs:

1<button class="transition-opacity duration-1000 ease-out opacity-50 hover:opacity-100">...</button>

When the above button is hovered, the following will happen:

  • The opacity will transition from 50% to 100%
  • This transition will happen over the duration of 1000ms
  • The transition will use an ease-out timing function

Check it out!


What classes are new in 1.2?


You can use this class to set the transition property. The available options are:

1none: 'none',
2all: 'all',
3default: 'background-color, border-color, color, opacity, transform',
4colors: 'background-color, border-color, color',
5opacity: 'opacity',
6transform: 'transform',

So you if you want to transition any of the color properties on your element, use: transition-colors.


Use the duration class to set the transition duration. The available options are:

1'75': '75ms',
2'100': '100ms',
3'150': '150ms',
4'200': '200ms',
5'300': '300ms',
6'500': '500ms',
7'700': '700ms',
8'1000': '1000ms',


The ease classes allow you to set the timing function for your transition. By default, Tailwind generates a couple custom easing functions for you:

1linear: 'linear',
2in: 'cubic-bezier(0.4, 0, 1, 1)',
3out: 'cubic-bezier(0, 0, 0.2, 1)',
4'in-out': 'cubic-bezier(0.4, 0, 0.2, 1)',
