CodePen affords it now!
Till not too long ago, we solely provided GitHub, Twitter, and Fb social login buttons. Twitter log in completely stopped engaged on us (are you stunned?) final week. It seems that was by far the least common possibility for logging in anyway, so we simply pulled it down and changed it with Google. An enormous quantity of you might have
@gmail.com electronic mail addresses (which doesn’t add in individuals who use Gmail on customized domains), so we knew this is able to be a preferred alternative.
There’s something essential to learn about all this!
The best way our social login works is that it’s simply an electronic mail matcher. No matter electronic mail handle we get again from that social login request we match with the account electronic mail right here on CodePen and log you in. You don’t have to recollect which social service you used to enroll with or something like that, you possibly can combine and match and use no matter you need, so long as the e-mail addresses match. So after we pulled down Twitter, no person was locked out or something. Particularly as everybody has a password right here on CodePen too and you’ll log in that conventional approach. (And for those who don’t, you possibly can all the time reset the password to be sure you do.)
Yet one more funky little factor to know: the Log In and Signal Up buttons are actually the identical factor. We now have totally different pages for it as a result of it makes for extra apparent UX, however the habits is identical. In case you attempt to Log In and don’t have an account on CodePen with that electronic mail, we’ll simply make you one fast. In case you attempt to Signal Up however already do have an account on CodePen, we’ll simply log you in.
