Dozens of utility classes with a single purpose designed to reduce the frequency of highly repetitive declarations in your CSS while allowing for quick and easy development.


Assign margin or padding to an element or a subset of its sides with shorthand classes. Includes support for individual properties, all properties, and vertical and horizontal properties. Classes are generated from a Sass map with values ranging from 0.25rem to 2rem.

The classes are named using the format: {property}{sides}{-breakpoint}-{size}.

Where property is one of:

  • m - for classes that set margin
  • p - for classes that set padding

Where breakpoint is one of the responsive breakpoints, if above the minimum xs size. Please refer to how our breakpoint nomenclature is used.

Where sides is one of:

  • blank - for classes that set a margin or padding on all 4 sides of the element
  • t - for classes that set margin-top or padding-top
  • b - for classes that set margin-bottom or padding-bottom
  • l - for classes that set margin-left or padding-left
  • r - for classes that set margin-right or padding-right
  • x - for classes that set both *-left and *-right
  • y - for classes that set both *-top and *-bottom

Where size is one of:

  • 0 - for classes that eliminate the margin or padding by setting it to 0
  • 0_25 - for classes that set the property to $spacer-x * 0.25 or $spacer-y * 0.25
  • 0_5 - for classes that set the property to $spacer-x * 0.5 or $spacer-y * 0.5
  • 1 - for classes that set the property to $spacer-x or $spacer-y
  • 1_5 - for classes that set the property to $spacer-x * 1.5 or $spacer-y * 1.5
  • 2 - for classes that set the property to $spacer-x * 2 or $spacer-y * 2

(You can add more sizes by adding entries to the $spacers Sass map variable.)

Here are some representative examples of these classes:

.mt-0 {
  margin-top: 0 !important;

.ml-1 {
  margin-left: $spacer-x !important;

.mt-md-1 {
  margin-top: $spacer-y !important;

.px-1_5 {
  padding-left: ($spacer-x * 1.5) !important;
  padding-right: ($spacer-x * 1.5) !important;

.p-2 {
  padding: ($spacer-y * 2) ($spacer-x * 2) !important;

Horizontal Centering

Additionally, we also include an .mx-auto class for horizontally centering fixed-width block level content— an element with display: block; and a defined width—by setting the horizontal margins to auto.

<div class="mx-auto" style="width: 200px;">
