Skip to main content



This component allows you to align and center your page content.


Add the .uk-container class to a block element to give it a max-width and wrap the main content of your website. The element will be centered and have padding on the sides, that adapts automatically for large screens.

Note The padding of nested containers will be removed to avoid unnecessary spacing.

<div class="uk-container"></div>
