Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for align self utilities.

Responsive

To control the individual alignment of a flex item at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing align self utility.

For example, use .md:align-self-start to apply the align-self-start utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Hover-state

To include hover-state variants like .hover:align-self-start, add "align-self" to the $hover-variants variable when recompiling your CSS:

$hover-variants: (
  // ...
  "align-self",
);
