CSS Base

Vendor Prefixing

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.

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.

  <h1>Long shadow generator</h1>
  <p>A Sass mixin that makes pulling off 'long shadow design' as easy as pie.
  </p>
    <p>For more information about this design trend, head over to <a href="http://je.roon.io/long-shadow-design">http://je.roon.io/long-shadow-design</a>. Just make sure not to look at the compiled CSS :)</p>

  <h2>Features</h2>
<ul>
  <li>Works with any element, both <strong>text-shadow</strong> and <strong>box-shadow</strong> is supported.</li>
  <li>Variable color</li>
  <li>Variable shadow length</li>
  <li>Shadow can either point to the <strong>left</strong> or to the <strong>right</strong></li>
  <li>Define if the shadow is <strong>skewed</strong> or not</li>
  <li>Choose if the shadow <strong>fades out</strong> or not (still in beta)</li>
</ul>  
<pre>
  <code class="language-scss">
.my-thing {
  @include long-shadow($type: text, $color: indigo, $length: 50, $fadeout: false, $skew: true, $direction: right);
}
  //That's it!</code>
  </pre>
  <h2>How does it work?</h2>
  <p>Basically: It uses a Sass @for loop to create a number of box-shadows, every shadow with a slightly different position. The number of shadows is based on the length that you enter.
