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.

1. Use unitless values for the triangle's width/height so they can be used in an SVG without doing extra work to strip the "px" unit (instead, add `px` where needed with `$value * 1px`).
2. Use `filter: drop-shadow` on the parent so the shadow seamlessly applies to the whole element.
3. Use an SVG background-image to create the triangle "cutout" effect.
4. To keep the transparent area behind the SVG, use a linear-gradient to fill in the remaining space.
5. (Optional) Depending on the size of your triangle, some browsers at some screen sizes will approximate the position of the gradient, adding an empty 1px border between the triangle and the gradient fill. To get around this, subtract a half pixel from the gradient's position so its edges always overlap.
6. To save a few lines of code, reuse the same pseudo-element styles and just flip the right side.

🕑 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.
