Why would we be talking about APIs, CodePen doesn't even have one, right? It's true, we don't have what is considered a traditional API. We explain why (and that we kinda do), and dig into the ins and outs of APIs on web apps.

Have any questions or thoughts? Feel free to drop them in the comments!

    I’d love to have an API for codepen. I’d probably use it to list my pens with certain tags on my websites lab-section. Anoother good thing would be to get the codepen blog posts from myself to also include and share them at my private website. Not actually the whole post but to get some sort of teaser/excerpt and the link and title of the post.
