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.

<h1>Hover me, I'm a wave!</h1>

  text-transform: uppercase;
  font-size: 2rem;

  // Ditto
	background: -o-linear-gradient(transparent, transparent);
  // Here's ours pile of backgrounds
    // Necessary per Divya's tutorial

    // The top image		     
    // The white panel we'll be moving
    // The gold background
    -webkit-linear-gradient(#fcb216, #fcb216);

   // We have to declare a background size for each element, in order
  // Thanks to some SVG oddity, we had to make the wave (the second element) 100%
  // We make the third element 200% 100% so that it can move. Our thanks to http://stackoverflow.com/a/25649073 for helping us understand what goes into background-size and -position
	background-size: cover, 110%, 200% 100%, 100%;
  // Likewise with the position
  // The important element is the third, at 200%—that's the white square we move
	background-position: top left, top, 200% 0%, right;
	// This is what gives us the clip over the image
  -webkit-background-clip: text;
	// This stops anything from repeating
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
	// Here's our transition
    // This transition is for supported browsers
    background-position 850ms ease-out, 
    // And this one for those that do not
    color 850ms;
	// Here's the hover effect
  &:hover {
	  // Here we move the white panel 
    background-position: top left, top, 0%, right;

🕑 One or more of the npm packages you are using needs to be built. You're the first person to ever need it! We're building it right now and your preview will start updating again when it's ready.
