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.

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.

                    <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})}
