Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URLs added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. You can use the CSS from another Pen by using its URL and the proper URL extension.

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.

Add Packages

Search for and use JavaScript packages from npm here. By selecting a package, an import statement will be added to the top of the JavaScript editor for this package.


Auto Save

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.

Format on Save

If enabled, your code will be formatted when you actively save your Pen. Note: your code becomes un-folded during formatting.

		<h1>HTML5 paste image to page</h1>
		<blockquote>Did you know that <code>HTML5</code> lets the user paste an image into the DOM tree? See a demo here and find the code needed in this <a href="">Gist</a>. I first came across this code here in a post <a href="">HTML5 JavaScript Pasting Image Data in Chrome</a>			by <a href="">Daniel X Moore</a> (from 2011!).</blockquote>
		<strong>Instructions</strong>: Copy an image to clipboard (For instance: <strong>Mac</strong>: <code>cmd+shift+ctrl+4</code> and <strong>Win</strong>: <code>Alt+PtrScr</code>), click on the <i>target div</i> to paste the image into, and paste <code>cmd+V</code>		or <code>ctrl+v</code>. <br />
		<strong class="text-info">Version 1.1</strong> Added camera snapshoot sound on paste - use my pen <a href="">Snapshoot sound - snapshoot()
</a> to get that feature on your pens. Also added option to toggle <code>background-size: contain</code> when clicking on pasted image.
