Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.
We have a GIPHY account, cause ya know, why not! You probably know it's an awesome place to find GIFs, but it's a cool place to store them as well, while helping the world have more awesome animation GIFs. We figured we'd contribute some (credited).
