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.

  // The idea is to get which of the container dimension
  // has a higher value when compared with the equivalents
  // of the video. Imagine a 1200x700 container and
  // 1000x500 video. Then in order to find the right balance
  // and do minimum scaling, we have to find the dimension
  // with higher ratio.
  // Ex: 1200/1000 = 1.2 and 700/500 = 1.4 - So it is best to
  // scale 500 to 700 and then calculate what should be the
  // right width. If we scale 1000 to 1200 then the height
  // will become 600 proportionately.
  var widthRatio = minW / w
    , heightRatio = minH / h;
  // Whichever ratio is more, the scaling
  // has to be done over that dimension

    var newWidth = minW;

🕑 One or more of the npm packages you are using needs to be built. You're the first person to ever need it! We're building it right now and your preview will start updating again when it's ready.
