I had an issue where I had a flexbox (
.flex with Tailwind) layout for two elements, but once the screen got narrower one element (in my case, an SVG) would get squished by the other element.
I wanted that one element to keep its original size and not get smaller when the other element squeezed it.
I was able to fix the problem by applying Tailwind's
.flex-shrink-0 class to the element that was becoming smaller!
The markup looked a bit like this:
<div class="flex"> <svg class="flex-shrink-0"></svg> <p>...</p> </div>
A quick favor: was anything I wrote incorrect or misspelled, or do you still have questions? Please use this form to let me know or ask for help!
