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.

  <h1>The Peek Menu</h1>
  <p>In designing new navigation for our writing app at <a href="http://www.voxmedia.com/careers">Vox Media</a> we tested a design with a dropdown menu indicating the current state. The menu performed poorly as it didn’t do a good job of showing there were other options underneath it. As a result we went back to the drawing board and did a total overhaul of our navigation system including removing the hamburger menu which are really filled with mystery meat, you never know what’s inside of them until you click on them. Our effort to make a more intuitive and transparent navigation lead us to do many things, including the creation of a new navigation pattern I’ll call the “peek menu”. This menu is the small screen variant of a tabbed menu that packs a lot of information into a small space. There are lines like a hamburger menu but each line represents an item in the list as well as a highlighted line for the currently active item. Other menu items in the list are left partially exposed to help indicate the context around the current selection and that there are more buried options.</p>
