Can’t seem to figure out modals. Checked tutorials and can’t seem to find anything here for the language I am attempting to use. Using HTML & PHP. Modal is for the landing page.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Can you share the code snippet that you are trying to use?

If you don't have one, you could give this one a try:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

	<meta charset="UTF-8">
	<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
	<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
	<title>Alpine.js Example - Modal</title>
	<link href="[email protected]^1.0/dist/tailwind.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
	<script src="[email protected]/dist/alpine.min.js" defer></script>

		[x-cloak] {
			display: none;

		.duration-300 {
			transition-duration: 300ms;

		.ease-in {
			transition-timing-function: cubic-bezier(0.4, 0, 1, 1);

		.ease-out {
			transition-timing-function: cubic-bezier(0, 0, 0.2, 1);

		.scale-90 {
			transform: scale(.9);

		.scale-100 {
			transform: scale(1);


<body class="mx-auto w-full bg-gray-100 flex items-center justify-center h-screen" x-data="{ 'showModal': false }" @keydown.escape="showModal = false" x-cloak>

	<section class="flex flex-wrap p-4 h-full items-center">

I got it figured out.

Did this: ```

<div x-data="{ open: false }">
    <div class="flex justify-center items-center relative">
        Click to test: <button class="bg-blue-900 text-white rounded px-4 py-2 ml-3" @click="open = !open">Toggle Modal</button>
    <div x-show="open" x-cloak="" class="fixed inset-0 z-50 flex justify-center items-center">
        <div class="bg-white rounded shadow-lg p-8 relative">
            <button class="absolute right-0 top-0 px-3 py-1" @click="open = false">x</button>
            I'm a modal
