Badges scale so that their height matches the font-size of their immediate parent element by using relative font sizing and em units.

Regular Badges

Use .badge class along with a .badge-{theme-color} class to create badges base on our Theme Colors.

Primary Secondary Tertiary Dark Success Warning Danger
<span class="badge badge-primary">Primary</span>
<span class="badge badge-secondary">Secondary</span>
<span class="badge badge-tertiary">Tertiary</span>
<span class="badge badge-dark">Dark</span>
<span class="badge badge-success">Success</span>
<span class="badge badge-warning">Warning</span>
<span class="badge badge-danger">Danger</span>

Text Badges

Add a .badge-text-{theme-color} class to your badge for a text variant that maintains the same spacing, just without the background color.

Primary Secondary Dark Success Danger
<span class="badge badge-text-primary">Primary</span>
<span class="badge badge-text-secondary">Secondary</span>
<span class="badge badge-text-dark">Dark</span>
<span class="badge badge-text-success">Success</span>
<span class="badge badge-text-danger">Danger</span>

Counter Badges

Use the .badge-pill modifier class to make badges more rounded

  <span class="badge badge-pill badge-secondary">2</span>
