CSS Base

Vendor Prefixing

Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URLs added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. You can use the CSS from another Pen by using its URL and the proper URL extension.

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.

Auto-Updating Preview

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

Another exercise to repeat classes:

[ x ] 1. Build a form with an input field for an ID (number) and a submit button.
[ x ] 2. Write a class to call the Chuck Norris Jokes API and get the Joke with the given ID.
[ X ] 3. Add another button "Random joke" on your website that asks the API for a random joke.
[ x ] 4. Display the joke as a nice CSS-styled quote on the page.

class ChuckNorrisApi {
  // Setting up the properties, we need in our class
  constructor() {
    this.apiUrl = "";
    this.idEndpoint = "/{id}";
    this.randomEndpoint = "/random";

    // Registering the form events

  registerEvents() {
    // Get the needed elements
    const form = document.querySelector(".form-inline");
    const button = document.querySelector("#random");
    const input = form.querySelector(".form-control");
    button.addEventListener("click", () => {
    const urlRandom = `${this.apiUrl}${this.randomEndpoint}`;
    console.log("URL", urlRandom);
    // Call the API and get joke data
    $.getJSON(urlRandom).then(data => {const randomJoke =  this.filterResults(data);
    console.log("Random joke", randomJoke);

     // Update the div element to have the new text inside
     document.querySelector("#joke").innerHTML = `<q>${randomJoke}</q>`;})

    // Add the event, when the form is submitted
    form.addEventListener("submit", e => {
      // Prevent the default to stop sending the form to the URL by the browser

      // Get the id from the input field
      const id = input.value.trim();

      this.getJoke(id).then(response => {

        // Filter the joke to the data we need (as it is having too many properties)

        const joke = this.filterResults(response);
        console.log("Joke", joke)

        // Update the div element to have the new text inside
        document.querySelector("#joke").innerHTML = `<q>${joke}</q>`;
      }).catch(err => throw err);

  getJoke(id, callback) {
    // Create the whole URL to get the data
    const endpoint = this.idEndpoint.replace("{id}", id);
    const url = `${this.apiUrl}${endpoint}`;

    console.log("get data", url);
  // Return a promise with this jQuery

  filterResults(data) {
