What is CodeBox


CodeBox is a coding environment with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript editors with a live preview panel to show what the code would look like in the browser

Why use CodeBox?


  • CodeBox is better than the editors in CodePen and JSFiddle because CodeBox features the same editor used in VS Code.
  • This means that it has autocomplete, syntax highlighting, and a lot of other features that we all know and love from VS Code.
  • Furthermore, it features hot reload which means, you don't have to press Ctrl/Cmd + S to show the code in the preview panel. It reloads automatically every time a key is pressed!
