To create a custom Tailwind responsive class using a plugin, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the Tailwind CSS plugin: First, install the Tailwind CSS plugin that allows you to define custom classes in your project. You can either use the official Tailwind CSS plugin for your preferred build tool (Webpack, Parcel, etc.) or use a PostCSS plugin like tailwindcss-custom-components.
  2. Define a custom class: Next, define your custom class using the plugin's syntax. For example, if you are using the tailwindcss-custom-components plugin, you can define a class like so:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
@custom-media --sm (min-width: 640px);
@custom-media --md (min-width: 768px);
@custom-media --lg (min-width: 1024px);
@custom-media --xl (min-width: 1280px);

.custom-class {
  color: blue;
}

@responsive {
  .custom-class {
    color: red;
  }
}


In this example, the .custom-class class will have a color: blue property by default, but with the @responsive directive, it will change to color: red on larger screen sizes.

  1. Apply the custom class: Finally, apply the custom class to your HTML elements like any other Tailwind CSS class:
1
<div class="custom-class md:custom-class lg:custom-class xl:custom-class">Responsive text color based on screen size</div>


This will apply the custom class's styles to the element based on the responsive breakpoints defined in the plugin.


Remember to refer to the documentation of the specific Tailwind CSS plugin you are using for more detailed instructions on defining custom classes and responsive styles.
