Sponsor: CodePen PRO 43:12

CodePen has launched Projects. Everything works exactly as you would expect in developing a website with a local file system and simple web server. Relative file paths to your images? No problem. @import in your CSS? Do it. Ajax requests? Sure thing. Nested folders? Got ’em.

Have an existing project elsewhere? Maybe a git repo you cloned locally and want to play with? You can drag the files into the Project Editor and get working right away.

Like to write your CSS with Sass? We got you. Just name the file, for example, with the file extension .scss and we’ll understand and process that file for you. Included partials and all. We’ve got all the major ones covered.

You’ll be able to deploy a CodePen Project to a static website. It’s a one click process for PRO users! Developer PRO users will also be able to map their deployed project to a domain they own. That way you can manage real production websites on CodePen.
