This is a bit late of a review, but they deserve it, they provide an amazing service as well as amazing customer service. Something went wrong when I wanted to subscribe to their pro thingy and instead of monthly billing it went with annual billing, 99% sure I chose monthly though, but anyways, I was short on money and could not afford the annual option at that time, despite not having to they were really nice and gave me a refund for that, it might not sound like much but it was greatly appreciated and I am very grateful, I am now subscribing monthly and will continue to do so
What I liked most about CodePen is that it supports a wide variety of programming languages. Another feature that I like is that I can see other people's projects and use them as examples for future developments. Also, it is a totally free platform.
I have never found errors or defects in CodePen. Nor do I consider that there are characteristics that need to be improved, it is a very stable and powerful platform.
CodePen is a great tool for testing and developing websites. I recommend it for being a totally free platform.
I use CodePen to validate the code of our organization's website before uploading it to the web server. Previously we had to view website errors when it was already published, making the process of making improvements more cumbersome. In addition, it is an excellent tool to collaborate in the development of other projects and take ideas from the people who publish their websites.
CodePen's UI is amazingly intuitive and allows the user to quickly test their code snippets or even much more complex implementations. It allows to easily import any JS library you can find a link for and is quick to update itself while you write to see the results as you code it. Just Great!
While there are certain feature to come and aspects missing or could be potentially improved, there is really nothing to dislike, and I have come across some points in other competitor apps but CodePen is just a job well done.
I've been using jsFiddle and other tool simultaneously for many years, as is my usual approach involving a long period of testing and searching to find the tool that ultimately survives the trials and meets my personal criteria in terms of functionality, usability, feature-richness and, general likability.
CodePen survived my harsh trails after many years of competing against other tools for exclusivity in my workflow, and it won with flying colors! I have become an authentic fan of the tool and although it might not be indispensable for my work I still love using it and it certainly eases up the development process; dare I say even it accelerates it.
I can only recommend this tool to any and all web developers and designers out there. It mades my workflow so much easier!
I am often confronted with CSS and JS problems which I need to validate before implementation on my sites, and need to test. CodePen is perfect for this and allows me to sort out the bugs and issues before going straight to production.
Excellent platform. I've created more than 70 pens so far, one has passed 110,000 views! It's a real playground where I can test all kinds of code snippets. Thanks, CodePen ^^
Sharing code snippets made easy: Codepen is the quickest way to put together a bunch of HTML, CSS and JS code and share it with anyone in the world.
Multiple CSS preprocessors: SCSS and LESS are two of the most popular code preprocessors and thankfully Codepen lets me do this without any fuss. Someone without SCSS installed in their computer can easily go to codepen.io and get a SCSS preprocessor.
Storing assets: The pro plan in code pen lets me store assets and resources that can be stored securely and that can be accessed from anywhere.
Support for private pens: Codepen gives user's the ability to share the snippets created with anyone in the world in a private manner.
There aren't many drawbacks. The price of the pro plan is a bit too expensive.
Live Weave is another free alternative to codepen
It helps me share code swiftly with anyone
codepen is an environment that is both for learning and development purpose. wecan share our on developed codes for any one those who need it as prime or free of cost. and each user can test our code or there own code here live and edit our codes to check whether they meet there requirements if yes then she/he can easily use it.
no dislikes at all its nice and gives me full freedom to test my code and use it
great tool for developers, designers etc
copying codes from others shared in codepen and use it in my application up on my needs
I like that it's like code sharing. As a beginner, you rarely see how some things interact in your code and it's definitely helpful to build off other people's code. It's also just amazing to see some of the stuff the experts can create as part of a challenge. I've used code samples in some of our email campaigns.
Some of the stuff is more "just for fun" so it's a lot to sort through if you're looking for specific elements you want to work in, in a professional way.
Testing new and innovative code ideas.
I really like the open source platform and the weekly challenges
I don’t like the layout, I wish it was set up differently
Ability to see solutions people have created all over the world
I have used codepen primarily for coding interviews. It was a breeze and the remote login feature is similar to a google doc but for coding. You have the other user (even from the other end of the world coding real time)
It needs an IDE to run, only if there was the ability to execute it would be ideal.
Google doc for coding interviews
Interviews and real time coding evaluation
I enjoy that there is the option to have "Live Coding" sessions so that students can follow along in real time on their browser.
Over all this sandbox is very well designed, but it does take a little getting used to with their file structure as far as personal forked projects go.
Take some time to really learn about all the features of CodePen, it will be worth your time.
Learning in a group setting in real time!
