Getting started

Flowbite can be included as a plugin into an existing Tailwind CSS project and it is supposed to help you build websites faster by having a set of web components to work with built with the utility classes from Tailwind CSS.

Install using NPM

Make sure that you have Node.js and Tailwind CSS installed.

  1. Install Flowbite as a dependency using NPM by running the following command:
npm install flowbite
  1. Require Flowbite as a plugin inside the tailwind.config.js file:
module.exports = {

    plugins: [

  1. Make sure that you add the template path to the tailwind.config.js file:
module.exports = {

    content: [

  1. Include the main JavaScript file to make interactive elements work:
<script src="../path/to/flowbite/dist/flowbite.js"></script>

Include via CDN

The quickest way to get started working with Flowbite is to simply include the CSS and JavaScript into your project via a CDN service such as UNPKG or CDNJS (content delivery networks).

Require the following minified stylesheet inside the head tag:

<link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/flowbite/1.6.3/flowbite.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

And include the following javascript file before the end of the body tag:

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/flowbite/1.6.3/flowbite.min.js"></script>

Bundled JavaScript

One of the most popular way of using Flowbite is to include the bundled Javascript file which is UMD ready using a bundler such as Webpack or Parcel which makes sure that all of the data attributes and functionality will work out-of-the-box.

You can directly import the main JavaScript file inside your bundled app-bundle.js file like this:

import 'flowbite';

This file has access to all of the components and it automatically applies event listeners to the data attributes.

Data attributes

The preferred way to use the interactive UI components from Flowbite is via the data attributes interface which allows us to add functionality via the HTML element attributes and most of the examples on our documentation applies this strategy.

For example, to set up a modal component all you need to do is use data-modal-target and data-modal-{toggle|show|hide} to toggle, show, or hide the component by clicking on any trigger element.

<button data-modal-target="defaultModal" data-modal-toggle="defaultModal" class="block text-white bg-blue-700 hover:bg-blue-800 focus:ring-4 focus:outline-none focus:ring-blue-300 font-medium rounded-lg text-sm px-5 py-2.5 text-center dark:bg-blue-600 dark:hover:bg-blue-700 dark:focus:ring-blue-800" type="button">
  Toggle modal

<!-- Main modal -->
<div id="defaultModal" tabindex="-1" aria-hidden="true" class="fixed top-0 left-0 right-0 z-50 hidden w-full p-4 overflow-x-hidden overflow-y-auto md:inset-0 h-[calc(100%-1rem)] md:h-full">
    <div class="relative w-full h-full max-w-2xl md:h-auto">
        <!-- Modal content -->
        <div class="relative bg-white rounded-lg shadow dark:bg-gray-700">
            <!-- Modal header -->
            <div class="flex items-start justify-between p-4 border-b rounded-t dark:border-gray-600">

You can view more examples by browsing the components from Flowbite.


Flowbite also offers an API for using the components programmatically and it supports both CJS and ESM for JavaScript which can be helpful if you need to expand the default capabilities of the data attributes interface and get access to function callbacks.

Here's an example how you can import and create a new Modal component inside JavaScript:

import { Modal } from 'flowbite'

const $modalElement = document.querySelector('#modalEl');

const modalOptions = {
    placement: 'bottom-right',
    backdrop: 'dynamic',
    backdropClasses: 'bg-gray-900 bg-opacity-50 dark:bg-opacity-80 fixed inset-0 z-40',
    onHide: () => {
        console.log('modal is hidden');
    onShow: () => {
        console.log('modal is shown');
    onToggle: () => {
        console.log('modal has been toggled');

const modal = new Modal($modalElement, modalOptions);


Check out the JavaScript behaviour section of each component's page to learn how you can use this.


Flowbite supports type declarations for the interactive UI components including object interfaces and parameter types. Check out the following examples to learn how you can use types with Flowbite.

Additionally to our code above, we will now import some relevant types from the Flowbite package, namely the ModalOptions and ModalInterface:

import { Modal } from 'flowbite'
import type { ModalOptions, ModalInterface } from 'flowbite'

// other code

Generally speaking, all of the components have an interface definition that you can use whenever you create a new object to make sure that you're using the correct types of parameters and methods.

When creating a new modal you can set the ModalInterface as the main type:

const modal: ModalInterface = new Modal($modalElement, modalOptions);

Flowbite also supports type definitions for the options object so if you want to set the placement of the modal based on types, here's how you would do that:

const modalOptions: ModalOptions = {
    placement: 'top-right'

const modal: ModalInterface = new Modal($modalElement, modalOptions);

JavaScript Frameworks

The awesome open-source community also built and currently maintains the following standalone libraries for React, Vue, Svelte, and Angular:

We also wrote integration guides for the following front-end frameworks and libraries:

Back-end Frameworks

Flowbite has a great integration with most of the back-end frameworks because it relies on vanilla JavaScript:


Flowbite is an open source collection of UI components built with the utility classes from Tailwind CSS that you can use as a starting point when coding user interfaces and websites.
