CSS Spacing Classes

There are CSS classes supplied by Quasar to help you with spacing for DOM elements or components. All options are prefixed with q- and then broken down into type (T), direction (D), and size (S). See the table below for all possible permutations.


    T       D                   S

T - type
  - values: p (padding), m (margin)

D - direction
  - values:
      t (top), r (right), b (bottom), l (left),
      a (all), x (both left & right), y (both top & bottom)

S - size
  - values:
      auto (ONLY for specific margins: q-ml-*, q-mr-*, q-mx-*),
      xs (extra small),
      sm (small),
      md (medium),
      lg (large),
      xl (extra large)


<!-- small padding in all directions -->
<div class="q-pa-sm">...</div>

<!-- medium margin to top, small margin to right -->
<q-card class="q-mt-md q-mr-sm">...</q-card>

Flex Addons

When enabled (through quasar.conf.js > framework > cssAddon: true) it provides breakpoint aware versions for all spacing related CSS classes.

Note that there will be a noticeable bump in CSS footprint when enabling it. So only do it if you really need it.


Examples: q-pa-xs-md q-pa-sm-sm q-px-md-lg q-py-md-md
