Tailwind CSS Clip-Path

This plugin adds utilities to use clip-path properties with Tailwind CSS described on developer.mozilla.org

# Install using npm
npm install --save-dev tailwind-clip-path

Add the plugin to file config

<div class="md:clip-path-revert">
  <!-- ... -->

You change, add, or remove utilities by editing the theme.clipPath section of your Tailwind config.

// tailwind.config.js
  theme: {
    clipPath: {
        mypolygon: "polygon(0 0, 100% 0, 100% 100%, 0 calc(100% - 1rem))",
  plugins: [

And use:

<img src="" class="clip-path-mypolygon" />
