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>CSS <code>:default</code> pseudo-class</h1>
    <p>The <code>:default</code> pseudo-class will target the default element in a form in a group of similar elements. </p>
    <p>In case you need to target the default button in a form that does not have a class, you can use the <code>:default</code> pseudo-class.</p>

    <p>"Reset" or "Clear" buttons in forms have serious usability issues. Avoid using them unless is strictly necessary. Here are some notes about why not to use them:</p>
