Hi @johnwick007

I understand this is an older post but hope my answer can still be helpful. You can certainly create your project in VS Code (I use that one for all my projects) or Brackets. But remember that you cannot share those projects. Unless you upload them to for example GitHub or GitLab . Or you can develop in your favorite text editor and then copy everything to codepen.

Concerning your other question, a CDN is a Content Delivery Network. It basically stores styles/scripts/… and you can call on them by importing it (this is a very simplified description though).


your answer so helpful …thank you tom :smiley:
