let’s dive in and learn how to use the align-content utility class in Tailwind CSS.
In Tailwind CSS, this class accepts many values – It’s an alternative to the CSS Align Content property.
The flex-wrap property can be modified with this class. In this case, it aligns flex lines. Within a flexible container, it specifies the alignment of lines.
When flex-wrap: wrap is applied, flex lines are aligned within a flexbox. This property can only be used if multiple lines of flexbox items exist.
Align Content Classes
Here are the possible values for the align content property:
- start – Aligns content to the top of the container.
- center – Aligns content to the center of the container.
- end – Aligns content to the bottom of the container.
- between – Distributes the rows of content evenly with space between them.
- around – Distributes the rows of content evenly with space around them.
- evenly – Distributes the rows of content evenly with equal space between them.
First, you must create a flex container with multiple rows of flex items before you can use the align-content class.

In above example, the align-content-evenly class is added to the parent div, which evenly distributes the rows of content with equal space between them.
The content-start class allows you to align the content to the top of the container. This is useful when you want to create a layout where the first row of content is at the top of the container, and any additional rows of content are displayed below it.
Lines are placed on the center of flex containers using this class.
Content-End class specifies how lines are positioned at the end of a flex container.
The content-between value of the align-content property in Tailwind CSS allows you to distribute the rows of content evenly with space between them. This is particularly useful when you want to create a layout where there is equal spacing between each row of content.
You can distribute rows of content evenly with space around them by setting the content-around class.
you can create equal spacing between rows of content and add visual breathing room between them:
You can use the content-evenly class to distribute rows of content evenly, including at the top and bottom of the container.
You can use this method when displaying multiple rows of content with equal emphasis to create a visually balanced layout.
You must add the align-content-evenly class to the parent element that contains your rows of content in order to use content-evenly:
