Utilities

Usage

To enable text-decoration utilities, you need to add .text-decoration class.

By itself it doesn't apply any style similar to how built-in Transform utility doesn't apply any transformations.

<h2 class="text-decoration">Header</h2>

text-decoration-line

Utilities for applying lines.
MDN: decoration-line

Use Tailwind CSS's no-underline to remove text decoration.

text-decoration-color

All Tailwind CSS colors AND your extended colors are available.

You can extend decoration colors and by extending textDecorationPlugin.colors.

Extend colors in tailwind.config.js

const colors = require('tailwindcss/colors')

module.exports = {
  theme: {
    extend: {
      textDecorationPlugin: {
        colors: {
          primary: 'tomato',
          secondary: 'gold',
        },
      },    },
  },
  variants: {},
  plugins: [textDecorationPlugin],
}

And use them in your HTML markup.

<h1 class="
    text-decoration 
    text-decoration-underline 
    text-decoration-overline 
    text-decoration-line-through 
    text-decoration-wavy
    text-decoration-primary
    text-decoration-2">
    Header
</h1>

If you extend colors, extended colors will be available for the plugin.

const colors = require('tailwindcss/colors')

module.exports = {
  theme: {
    extend: {
      colors: {
        'light-blue': colors.lightBlue,
      },
      textDecorationPlugin: {
        colors: {
          primary: 'tomato',
        },
      },
    },
  },
  variants: {},
  plugins: [textDecorationPlugin],
}

And use them in your HTML markup.

<h1 class="
    text-decoration 
    text-decoration-underline 
    text-decoration-overline 
    text-decoration-line-through 
    text-decoration-wavy
    text-decoration-light-blue-300
    text-decoration-2">
    Header
</h1>

text-decoration-style

You can use following text-decoration-styles.

CSSApplied Style
text-decoration-solidtext-decoration-style: solid
text-decoration-doubletext-decoration-style: double
text-decoration-dottedtext-decoration-style: dotted
text-decoration-dashedtext-decoration-style: dashed
text-decoration-wavytext-decoration-style: wavy

text-decoration-thickness

When you type decoration-{thickness: number}, text-decoration-thickness will be applied.

As an example, decoration-2 will apply 2px thickness

<h1 class="
    text-decoration 
    text-decoration-underline 
    text-decoration-overline 
    text-decoration-line-through 
    text-decoration-wavy
    text-decoration-primary
    text-decoration-2">
    Header
</h1>

Available values are,

CSSApplied Style
text-decoration-1text-decoration-thickness: 1px;
text-decoration-2text-decoration-thickness: 2px;
text-decoration-4text-decoration-thickness: 4px;
text-decoration-8text-decoration-thickness: 8px;

You can extend the thickness by updating configuration, textDecorationPlugin.thicknesses property.

module.exports = {
  theme: {
    extend: {
      textDecorationPlugin: {
        thicknesses: {
          '0.2rem': '0.2rem',
        },
      },
    },
  },
  variants: {},
  plugins: [textDecorationPlugin],
}

And use it as decoration-0.2rem.

Clearing Deocration

Use decoration-none.
