How to stick an element on the bottom of the page with flexbox

A simple example of how to align a div to the bottom of the page.

I’ve had the problem to stick an element to the bottom of a page in case the window was too big (in height). But still be part of the flow of the page if there was not enough screen size.

Here is a very minimal example I made using Tailwind CSS:

<html>
  <body class="text-center">
    <p>test</p>
    <p>&copy; 2022</p>
  </body>
</html>

How to stick an element on the bottom of the page with flexbox

We want the “footer” HTML element to stick to the bottom using Flexbox.

So we first use Flexbox (flex flex-col), we set the minimum height to the screen (min-h-screen).

Then we add flex-grow to grow the preceding element of the footer:

<html>
  <body class="text-center min-h-screen flex flex-col">
    <p class="flex-grow">test</p>
    <p>&copy; 2022</p>
  </body>
</html>

This code generates this result:
