Go PRO Window blinds lowered to protect code. Code Editor with window blinds (raised) and a light blub turned on.

Keep it secret; keep it safe.

Private Pens are hidden everywhere on CodePen, except to you. You can still share them and other people can see them, they just can't find them through searching or browsing.

Make Template?

Templates are Pens that can be used to start other Pens quickly from the create menu. The new Pen will copy all the code and settings from the template and make a new Pen (that is not a fork). You can view all of your templates, or learn more in the documentation.

Template URL

Any Pen can act as a template (even if you don't flip the toggle above) with a special URL you can use yourself or share with others. Here's this Pen's template URL:


Screenshot or Custom Thumbnail

Screenshots of Pens are shown in mobile browsers, RSS feeds, to users who chose images instead of iframes, and in social media sharing.

This Pen is using the default Screenshot, generated by CodePen. Upgrade to PRO to upload your own thumbnail that will be displayed on previews of this pen throughout the site and when sharing to social media.

                You have <span>3</span> lives!




                // The famous sequence of input's representing the KONAMI cheat code.
var KONAMI_CODE = ['UP', 'UP', 'DOWN', 'DOWN', 'LEFT', 'RIGHT', 'LEFT', 'RIGHT', 'B', 'A'];

  Takes a KeyBoardEvent and returns either a KONAMI_CODE key
  or the value null.
  It will return a KONAMI_CODE key when the KeyBoardEvent's key
  matches a value in the KONAMI_CODE.
  It will return null when the key is not part of the KONAMI_CODE.
function eventToKonamiCode(event) {
  switch (event.which) {
    case 38: return 'UP';
    case 40: return 'DOWN';
    case 37: return 'LEFT';
    case 39: return 'RIGHT';
    case 66: return 'B';
    case 65: return 'A';
  return null;

  Checks if the codes paramater, which is an array, matches the KONAMI_CODE exactly.
function isKonamiCode(codes) {
  return _.isEqual(codes, KONAMI_CODE);

  Appends the 'code' parameter to the 'codes' parameter, if the
  code is the next part of the KONAMI_CODE sequence.
  If the code is not the next sequence of the KONAMI_CODE an
  empty array is returned.
function codeAccumulator(codes, code) {
  // Not a normal KONAMI_CODE key so return an empty array.
  if (code === null) {
    return [];

  // Check if 'codes' still matches the KONAMI_CODE.
  var subKonamiCode = _.take(KONAMI_CODE, codes.length);
  if (_.isEqual(codes, subKonamiCode)) {
    return codes;
  } else {
    return []; // No match back to square one.

var konamiStream = Rx.Observable.fromEvent(document, 'keydown')
  .scan(codeAccumulator, [])

var livesSpan = document.querySelector('span');

konamiStream.subscribe(function() {
  alert('You entered the Konami code!');
  livesSpan.textContent = '99';
Keep the <main> thing the <main> thing.
