Bootstrap 5 Clearfix

Quickly and easily clear floated content within a container by adding a clearfix utility.

Basic example

Easily clear floats by adding .clearfix to the parent element. Can also be used as a mixin.

Use in HTML:

          <div class="clearfix">...</div>

The mixin source code:

          @mixin clearfix() {
            &::after { 
              display: block;
              clear: both; 
              content: "";

Use the mixin in SCSS:

          .element {
            @include clearfix; 

The following example shows how the clearfix can be used. Without the clearfix the wrapping div would not span around the buttons which would cause a broken layout.

          <div class="bg-info clearfix">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary float-start" data-mdb-ripple-init>
              Example Button floated left
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary float-end" data-mdb-ripple-init>
              Example Button floated right
          // Initialization for ES Users
          import { Ripple, initMDB } from "mdb-ui-kit";
          initMDB({ Ripple });
