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.

HTML Settings

Here you can Sed posuere consectetur est at lobortis. Donec ullamcorper nulla non metus auctor fringilla. Maecenas sed diam eget risus varius blandit sit amet non magna. Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Praesent commodo cursus magna, vel scelerisque nisl consectetur et.

              // Impure case 1: even with the same input, the output is different each time due to Math.random() generated within the function (this is also the case with dates!)
var myAge = 29;
var randomlyOlder = (currentAge) => currentAge + parseInt((Math.random() * 10).toFixed(0));
console.log('Randomly Older: ' + randomlyOlder(myAge)); 

// Impure case 2: the output depends on a value defined outside of the function.
var yourAge = 19;
var addSomeYears = (years) => yourAge + years;

// Pure versions of the above: 
// for inputs 29 and 10, the answer will always be 39 compared to the impure function above where, for input 20, the answer will vary depending on the value of yourAge.
var gettingOlder = (age, years) => age + years;
console.log(gettingOlder(29, 10));

// If you still wanted to use a random number, you can determine that outside the function, and pass it in as the years parameter:
var random = parseInt((Math.random() * 10).toFixed(0));
console.log('More random aging: ' + gettingOlder(29, random));

🕑 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.
