From IndieWeb

CodePen is a silo for hosting HTML, CSS and JavaScript snippets to demonstrate the capabilities of the client-side Web.



Depends on AWS

(though that’s true for many sites)

  • Criticism: depends on AWS (and thus vulnerable to their outages)
    • "Imagine CodePen going down.

      Or Amazon having yet another outage *cough

      You are stuck.

      If you have different domains hosting code, the whole system becomes more resilient to failures (the original motivation behind the Internet)." @AndreJaenisch November 26, 2020
