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 is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

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.

  <h1>Realistic Text</h1>
  <p>You may click here and type to edit the contents of this text. This silly effect is accomplished using mostly Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS for short. The trick is overlaying three or more slightly transparent objects and using slightly different rotations for each. In this case, the variation between each is 0.3 degrees. This paragraph is full of unnecessary words, just to make it nice looking. Made by Lucas Bebber. You can look at my CodePen profile (@lbebber) to see other stuff I made.</p>
