-backdrop-hue-rotate-60--tw-backdrop-hue-rotate: hue-rotate(-60deg);

backdrop-hue-rotate-15--tw-backdrop-hue-rotate: hue-rotate(15deg);
backdrop-hue-rotate-30--tw-backdrop-hue-rotate: hue-rotate(30deg);
backdrop-hue-rotate-60--tw-backdrop-hue-rotate: hue-rotate(60deg);
backdrop-hue-rotate-90--tw-backdrop-hue-rotate: hue-rotate(90deg);
backdrop-hue-rotate-180--tw-backdrop-hue-rotate: hue-rotate(180deg);


Use the backdrop-hue-rotate-{amount} utilities alongside the backdrop-filter utility to rotate the hue of an element’s backdrop.

<div class="backdrop-filter backdrop-hue-rotate-15 ...">
  <!-- ... -->


To control an element’s backdrop hue rotation at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing backdrop hue-rotate utility. For example, use md:backdrop-hue-rotate-60 to apply the backdrop-hue-rotate-60 utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="backdrop-filter backdrop-hue-rotate-15 md:backdrop-hue-rotate-60 ...">
  <!-- ... -->

You can customize which backdrop-hue-rotate utilities are generated using the backdropHueRotate key in the theme section of your tailwind.config.js file.

  // tailwind.config.js
  module.exports = {
    theme: {
+     extend: {
+       backdropHueRotate: {
+         '-270': '-270deg',
+         270: '270deg',
+       }
+     }

Learn more about customizing the default theme in the theme customization documentation.


By default, only responsive variants are generated for backdrop hue-rotate utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the backdrop hue-rotate utilities by modifying the backdropHueRotate property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

  // tailwind.config.js
  module.exports = {
    variants: {
      extend: {
        // ...
+       backdropHueRotate: ['hover', 'focus'],


If you don't plan to use the backdrop hue-rotate utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the backdropHueRotate property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

  // tailwind.config.js
  module.exports = {
    corePlugins: {
      // ...
+     backdropHueRotate: false,
