Stack

Stack is a layout component that makes it easy to stack elements together and apply a space between them.

Import#

  • Stack: Used to add spacing between elements in the horizontal or vertical direction. It supports responsive values.
  • HStack: Used to add spacing between elements in horizontal direction, and centers them.
  • VStack: Used to add spacing between elements in vertical direction only, and centers them.

Usage#

Stack components use a modified version of the CSS lobotomized owl selector to add spacing between it's children.

Stack's primary use case is to layout items and control the spacing between each item. If you have a more complicated use case, such as changing the margin on the last child, you can combine Stack and Flex and use justify-content: space-between for more control of the layout.

Basic#

To stack elements in horizontal or vertical direction only, use the VStack and HStack components.

You can also use the Stack component as well and pass the direction prop.
