Using first-of-type to Style the First Row of the List

Sam Xiao's Avatar 2022-01-24

We can use first-of-type modifier to style the first row of the List.

Version

TailwindCSS 3.0

first-of-type

first000

The background color of the first row of the list is gray.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

<body>
  <ul x-data="{ colors: ['Red', 'Green', 'Blue']}">
    <template x-for="x in colors">
      <li class="first-of-type:bg-gray-300" x-text="x" />
    </template>
  </ul>
</body>

<ul x-data="{ colors: ['Red', 'Green', 'Blue']}">
  <template x-for="x in colors">
    <li class="first-of-type:bg-gray-300" x-text="x" />
  </template>
</ul>
  • first-of-type : apply utility on the first child element of the same element type of <ul>

Conclusion

  • first doesn’t work on Alpine. Since we have to use <template> with x-for, the first child element of <ul> is <template>, not <li>
  • To make Alpine work, we have to use first-of-type instead of first

Reference

TailwindCSS, first-of-type
