Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

+ add another resource

You're using npm packages, so we've auto-selected Babel for you here, which we require to process imports and make it all work. If you need to use a different JavaScript preprocessor, remove the packages in the npm tab.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

Use npm Packages

We can make npm packages available for you to use in your JavaScript. We use webpack to prepare them and make them available to import. We'll also process your JavaScript with Babel.

⚠️ This feature can only be used by logged in users.

Save Automatically?

If active, Pens will autosave every 30 seconds after being saved once.

Auto-Updating Preview

If enabled, the preview panel updates automatically as you code. If disabled, use the "Run" button to update.

              This is the math supporting the concept of [this other Pen]( of mine ;-)

On the horizontal axis you have the ratio between 0 and 4, on the vertical axis you have the text area relative to the viewport area between 0 and 120%.

The green line is the ideal situation if you could just do `font-size: calc(10 * 1vw * 1vh)` and the text area is always 100% of the viewport area. Sadly you can’t do this.

The blue lines are poor attempts to match the green line as close as possible (`font-size: calc(5vw + 5vh)` and `font-size: 10vmin`) but they only match 100% for `ratio = 1`.

The red line is a combination of the two (`font-size: calc(4vw + 4vh + 2vmin)`) and is the best approach so far. This one even allows for tweaking of the actual numbers depending of what minimum and maximum ratio you want to support.

In those examples all scalars add up to 10 and that is the magic number that depends on how much how much text you want to fit, line height and the area relative to the viewport you want to fill.
