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.

Format on Save

If enabled, your code will be formatted when you actively save your Pen. Note: your code becomes un-folded during formatting.

	<p>This is a pure CSS dashed gradient border! No canvas or SVG here. And no extra elements! And no covers (opaque elements to hide other elements) involved! We can have a (semi)tranparent background on the element it's applied to so that we can see through to whatever element is in the back. And the corners stay pretty on resize - just try it!</p>
