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>Frosted Glass as React Component</h1>
                        I'm a big fan of the Frosted Glass effect. With this Component
                        you can easily use it in your React projects. To get it just
                        grab the &lt;FrostedGlassView /&gt; component and the first part
                        of the stylesheet.<br />
                        Unfortunately there are still some issues of using it in some browsers.
                        For example if you have scrollable content Edge and Firefox will get 
                        stucked with the background image. That's why you can disable the 
                        effect with the <code>disabled</code> property.
                            onChange={() => this.setState({disabled: !this.state.disabled})}
                        &nbsp;Disable frosted glass effect

React.render(<App />, document.getElementById('app'));
🕑 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.
