Borders with alpha transparency

Use border-black-fade to add an rgba black border with an alpha transparency of 0.15. This is useful when you want a border that tints the background color. The shade of black we use matches the hue of the GitHub dark header and our gray color palette: rgba(27,31,35, 0.15).

.border-black-fade .bg-blue-light
.border-black-fade .bg-red-light
<div class="border border-black-fade bg-blue-light p-2 mb-2">
  .border-black-fade .bg-blue-light
</div>
<div class="border border-black-fade bg-red-light p-2 mb-2">
  .border-black-fade .bg-red-light
</div>

Border style

Use border-dashed to give an element a dashed border.

.border-dashed
<div class="border border-dashed p-2">
  .border-dashed
</div>

Rounded corners

Use the following utilities to add or remove rounded corners: rounded-0 removes rounded corners, rounded-1 applies a border radius of 3px, rounded-2 applies a border radius of 6px. .circle applies a border radius of 50%, which turns square elements into perfect circles.

.rounded-0
.rounded-1
.rounded-2
.circle
<div class="Box rounded-0 mb-2">
  .rounded-0
</div>
<div class="border rounded-1 mb-2">
  .rounded-1
</div>
<div class="border rounded-2 mb-2">
  .rounded-2
</div>
<div class="border circle p-3" style="width: 100px; height: 100px;">
  .circle
</div>

You can also add rounded corners to each edge (top, right, bottom, left) with the following utilities:

.rounded-top
.rounded-right
.rounded-bottom
.rounded-left
<div class="border rounded-top mb-2">
  .rounded-top

</div>
<div class="border rounded-bottom mb-2">
