Use color utility classes to set colors for background and text. It also support styling links with hover states.

<p class="text-primary">.text-primary</p>
<p class="text-secondary">.text-secondary</p>
<p class="text-success">.text-success</p>
<p class="text-danger">.text-danger</p>
<p class="text-warning">.text-warning</p>
<p class="text-info">.text-info</p>
<p class="text-light bg-dark">.text-light</p>
<p class="text-dark">.text-dark</p>
<p class="text-body">.text-body</p>
<p class="text-muted">.text-muted</p>
<p class="text-white bg-dark">.text-white</p>
<p class="text-black-50">.text-black-50</p>
<p class="text-white-50 bg-dark">.text-white-50</p>

Contextual text classes also work well on anchors and provides hover and focus states.

The .text-white and .text-muted class has no additional link styling beyond underline.

<p><a href="#" class="text-primary">Primary link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-secondary">Secondary link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-success">Success link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-danger">Danger link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-warning">Warning link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-info">Info link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-light bg-dark">Light link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-dark">Dark link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-muted">Muted link</a></p>
<p><a href="#" class="text-white bg-dark">White link</a></p>
Background color

Set the background of an element using any contextual class. Background utilities do not set text color, so you'll want to use .text-* utilities.

<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-primary text-white">.bg-primary</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-secondary text-white">.bg-secondary</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-success text-white">.bg-success</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-danger text-white">.bg-danger</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-warning text-dark">.bg-warning</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-info text-white">.bg-info</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-light text-dark">.bg-light</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-dark text-white">.bg-dark</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-white text-dark">.bg-white</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-transparent text-dark">.bg-transparent</div>
Background gradient

When $enable-gradients is set to true, you'll be able to use .bg-gradient- utility classes. By default, $enable-gradients is disabled and the example below is broken.

<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-primary text-white">.bg-gradient-primary</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-secondary text-white">.bg-gradient-secondary</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-success text-white">.bg-gradient-success</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-danger text-white">.bg-gradient-danger</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-warning text-dark">.bg-gradient-warning</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-info text-white">.bg-gradient-info</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-light text-dark">.bg-gradient-light</div>
<div class="p-3 mb-2 bg-gradient-dark text-white">.bg-gradient-dark</div>

Using color only provides a visual indication. To support the users of assistive technologies such as screen readers, add additional information denoted by the color such as additional text hidden with the .sr-only class.
