Built With Stencil


Codepen is an awesome tool to showcase a piece of front-end code. Did you know there is a way to dynamically create a pen with pre-filled code?

Codepen has an amazing API to allow developers do this, however the way to do it is via submitting a form. The codepen-link component simplifies this set up.


  html="<h1>Hello world</h1>"
  title="Open in CodePen"
  pen-title="New demo pen"
  css="body{ font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; }"
  <button type="button">Click me view in Codepen</button>



<script type="module" src=""></script>
<script nomodule src=""></script>

add the script tags in your html and the component will get lazy loaded when it's used on the page.
