Babel includes JSX processing.

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.

Add Packages

Search for and use JavaScript packages from npm here. By selecting a package, an import statement will be added to the top of the JavaScript editor for this package.


Auto Save

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

The object that gets passed as the only parameter to the "end" function will have the properties are listed in linkedProps. So, for example, if linkedProps is "x,y", then an object like {x:100, y:140} gets passed to the function as a parameter. Those values are the natural ending values, but of course your function should return a similar object with the new values you want the end values to be, like return {x:200, y:300}.
