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.

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.

              <p>Only want to insert HTML5 video if certain conditions are met? Say you're using a video as an animated background, but iOS isn't going to play that video inline. Or you may need to only control a video in Javascript. Why waste the users bandwidth loading a video that can't be used?</p>

<p>View the source to see that there are no inline <code>&lt;video&gt;</code> or <code>&lt;img&gt;</code> elements. They are all added via Javascript so you have greater control over when & where.</p>

<p>This <code>insertVideos</code> condition is set to <code>false</code> so the <code>data-fallback</code> attribute will be inserted instead.</p>

<p>This insert video is going to fail so the <code>data-poster</code> attribute will be inserted as an image since there isn't a <code>data-fallback</code> attribute or any fallback set in the <code>insertVideos()</code> call.</p>
