I’ve been trying to get a pen featured on Codepen for some days now… and today I woke up and as always I was checking codepen to see the featured pens (for inspiration), and I realized that one of my pens is in there!
They liked the letter animations pen I did yesterday! Yuhuu!
Congrats. The effects are pretty cool.
Oh! That was such a top-drawer animation effect. Try doing a tutorial post/video on it for beginners.
@Nicknyr Thank you. I’m glad you liked it!
@sksundram I’ll try to do something soon!
It looks absolutely fantastic, well done!! I am on tribute page now, so I guess it will long time to get to this stage.
@alexandriaroberts We all were there at some point
Keep up the good work, and you’ll learn a lot!
Awesome! Congratulations on getting picked by CodePen twice! Both of these pens are quite creative and well-executed!
Thank you @QuincyLarson! I’ve been trying to get picked for the past 4-5 days
Congrats! Looks great! Lots of fun
Oh wow! Good for you! That’s a very cool effect.
Yey! 4th time with an Image Shuffled Animation
P.S. Not working on Safari yet… anyone wanna give a hand?
I’m not very familiar with cross browser issues, unfortunately!
How did you get picked 4 times in a week???
You need to start teachings your black hat cpppo (codepen picked pen optimization) techniques to the rest of us
Well… basically you have to do two things:
- Make something to get people’s attention, like a nice animation, or something with good design, because their staff won’t look into all pens to see functionality (read this from their website )
- Post it on twitter with @Codepen and a link
Have fun and do what you love
Good luck @dcenatiempo!!
Huh. I wonder what it’s like having good design skills.
If you add Babel, it should take care of all your problems.
I don’t think you have to make something that has a lot of eye candy or interactivity. I once made a pen about static radial progress bars (which was basically a rewrite of an existing and more popular static radial progress bars (I gave credit to the original though)), with no animations whatsoever on a white background, shared it on Twitter, and it got picked. I did not expect that tbh.
