I was a huge CodePen fan in the past, but lately, I prefer my local development environment for creating quick demos and tryouts. I'm so used to my VS Code setup that I don't want to miss it.
To not fill my computer with random "throw away files", I usually create projects in the
/tmp directory, test something out and forget about the files because they'll be deleted automatically.
Today I discovered the CodeSwing VS Code extension. It's like a local CodePen and precisely what I needed. It quickly spins up a demo environment, includes a snappy browser preview and automatically cleans up the files. It's beautiful!
