5 Best COVID-19 CodePens in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

Learn, code, and develop innovative ideas with these impressive CodePens and upgrade your skills to the next level!

With the number of coronavirus cases increasing globally and “coronavirus anxiety” now a reality, there are some strategies professionals can take to ensure their teams not only continue to collaborate effectively but also maintain momentum in the projects.

There are some fortunate people like me who are stuck at home and working remotely. We should spend quality time improving our basic technical skills, and learn new technical skills. Equally important is spending a good amount of time with your loved ones and have a peaceful and relaxing mind.

I believe that Coronavirus offers us “a blank page for a new beginning”. We will learn how to be satisfied just with simple clothes, rediscovering old favourites we used to own, reading a forgotten book and cooking up a storm to make life grand. Hence, we need to cherish every moment in life and prepare ourselves for returning back to normal life.

If you are a web developer or interested in coding you can try the CodePen website to learn and enhance your web development skills. Codepen is a playground for front-end web development.

CodePen is all about inspiration, education, and sharing. Learn to code and show off your latest creation and get feedback from your peers using CodePen.

Here I have selected five excellent yet simple CodePen demos for you to experiment with, personalize, create incredible effects, and develop ideas for your project.

1. Coronavirus Theme Template

Awesome theme template designed and inspired by Manouchehr Tizkhan. Ultra-smooth and sleek with a clean, modern layout that is remarkably easy to customize, this template is a great way to attract visitors to your web application.

2. Coronavirus Data Map

We have seen many great dashboards and visualization from several organizations. However, Coronavirus map design by Adam Kuhn using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is unique as well as impressive. You can simply scroll or hover over the countries to know the latest data quickly.

3. Paper Chase

With HTML and CSS, you can find some little joys; CSS can make many funny things that you may not have realized. A great code by Adam Kuhn, where we can see a toilet paper running on the sidepath. During times of uncertainty, we should find moments of fun and joy. Explore this code in detail and let’s see if you can come up with another great humorous piece of code demo.

4. Coronavirus (COVID-19) Live Tracker Web Page

A very clean, attractive, and dynamic website designed by Ashish Kumar stands out. Minimalistic design features coupled with colours and icons make it beautiful. You can take an idea from the source code and enhance the web page to make it even better.

5. Coronavirus Shooting Game

Who does not like a game? Even if you are a kid or an adult, you can never stay without playing any game. Faisal Jawed delivered an impressive master-piece by designing a shooting game to destroy the virus. A very bizarre and engaging idea turned into a game to keep everyone interested in fighting a battle against the virus. Let’s see how many viruses you can kill.

Closing Thoughts

Inspired to start coding with these pens? Are you ready to learn and innovate with these cool ideas? Do you want to improvise these codes and build an impressive code? Give it a shot in coding and see where you stand at the end of the day.

Remember to always learn from the other developers. Start coding by observing their work and practise by improvising the original source code. Equally important is how you serve back to your developer community — by sharing your work or contributing innovative ideas.

Happy learning and programming!
