Pen Settings

CSS Base

Vendor Prefixing

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.

<h1>Designing<br />in<br />Photoshop<br />sucks</h1>
  
<p><em>I’m not saying you can’t design in Photoshop. I certainly used to, and plenty of designers much more talented than myself do. But I’d argue that in 90% of cases, it’s not the best tool for the job. I’ll explain why.</em></p>

<hr>

<p>It’s incredibly common for web designers to use Photoshop as a tool to mock up sites. I get it. It’s quick, simple and visual… but also totally inaccurate.</p>

<p>By designing a web page in Photoshop, you’re creating a fixed-size image for a responsive, “retina-display” world. It’s not a true representation of what you’d actually see on the web. Animation, transitions, accurate/readable fonts and responsive design are all becoming essential in a mobile-focused landscape.</p>

<p>Sure, you can make a couple comps, mock up different breakpoints and so on &mdash; but that’s just making things super complicated.</p>

<p>Personally, I think it’s really important for web designers to <i>design in the browser</i>. Start with a sketch, flesh out all your ideas on paper then jump straight into code.</p>

<hr>

<p>I’ve been taking this approach for the last three or four years, and it really gives you an idea of what can actually be achieved with HTML & CSS. Clients also find a static web page much more impressive than an image, even if it’s super simple.</p>

<p>Sometimes you’ll see mockups and they’ll be impossible (or at least, very complicated) to implement. Web designers now, more than ever, need an in-depth understanding of their medium — otherwise you won’t be able to design effective, functional sites.</p>
