Pen Settings



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


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.

Save Automatically?

If active, Pens will autosave every 30 seconds after being saved once.

Auto-Updating Preview

// I suppose the "say congrats" toggle should not really be a toggle but rather send a message of congrats to Fluffy (in addition to the things it already does) but then what if you toggle the button again? Will the congrats message go away? Fluffy would be sad. this interaction doesn't feel "on purpose" enough, I need to think about this some more. 

// maybe the "say congrats" button could have a visual indicator that the user had left a congrats message (add a checkmark or something?)

//Also is this really how tedious plain JS is? It's so tedious. I want Ember back please.
