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.

JavaScript

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.

Packages

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.

Behavior

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.

Format on Save

If enabled, your code will be formatted when you actively save your Pen. Note: your code becomes un-folded during formatting.

  <h2>About this demo</h2>
  <p>For years, websites (like <a href="https://www.pinterest.com/">Pinterest</a>) have wanted a certain layout that packs together different-sized cards of content, while allowing a source order where the content runs across the columns. This layout keeps closely-ordered content visually together above the fold, and allows lazy-loading of new content to the bottom of the page. As of early 2020, this layout requires a JavaScript solution, such as the popular <a href="https://masonry.desandro.com/">Masonry</a> library.</p>
<p>The CSS Working Group is currently pursuing a way to do this in 100% CSS. Mozilla is proposing one way to do this — and has implemented the idea, so that people can try it out and see what they think. This works in April/May 2020.</p>
<p>You can try it in <a href="http://nightly.mozilla.org/">Firefox Nightly</a>. Type <code>about:config</code> in the URL bar. Then search for “masonry”. And set <code>layout.css.grid-template-masonry-value.enabled</code> to true.</p>
<p>This is an experimental implementation — being discussed as a <em>possible</em> CSS specification. It is NOT yet official, and likely will change. Do not write blog posts saying this is definitely a thing. It's not a thing. Not yet. It's an experiment. A prototype. If you have thoughts, chime in at <a href="https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4650">the CSSWG</a>.</p>
