Exporting Pens is a great way to make an offline backup or to port your code to another project, but what if you wanted to keep working on that preprocessor code locally?

Now you can, with the latest PRO feature: Export with Build Process!

Open any Pen and click Export in the footer to try the new Build Process option. You’ll receive a .zip file with your original code, a backup of the in-browser preview, and a build script customized for the preprocessors used!

No internet? No problem! You can work offline after you run npm install. There’s even an auto-refreshing preview server for a local CodePen-like experience.

Also, each exported Pen has a DOCUMENTATION.markdown file in folder that unzips that explains how to use it.
