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.

Using this basic markup, style the buttons. Each button has a specific class corresponding to the prompt. Add CSS to each class to style the buttons independently. Pick a promt that sounds interesting to you and go to town!

❌ Some restrictions:
- You can mess around with the markup and the CSS but try to keep what's there already.
- Only use Vanilla CSS ☝️

🎨 Get creative with it and share with us your button styles!
