Clearfix

Easily clear floats by adding .clearfix to the parent element. A detailed explanation of how the clearfix works is available.

<div class="clearfix">...</div>

Can also be used as a mixin.

// Mixin itself
@mixin clearfix() {
    &::after {
        display: block;
        clear: both;
        content: "";
    }
}

// Usage as a mixin
.element {
  @include clearfix;
}

The following example shows how the clearfix can be used. Without the clearfix the wrapping div would not span around the buttons which would cause a broken layout, as shown in the second part of the example.

With .clearfix
Without .clearfix
    <!-- With .clearfix -->
    <div class="bg-info clearfix">
        <button type="button" class="btn float-start">Button floated to start</button>
        <button type="button" class="btn float-end">Button floated to end</button>
    </div>

    <!-- Without .clearfix -->
    <div class="bg-info">
        <button type="button" class="btn float-start">Button floated to start</button>
        <button type="button" class="btn float-end">Button floated to end</button>
    </div>
