How to Create a JSFiddle Account

By Chris Minnick, Eva Holland

Creating a JSFiddle account for your JavaScript programming isn’t required, but it will make viewing and sharing your work later on easier. Follow these steps to create a JSFiddle account:

  1. Click the Fork button in the top menu.

    When you create your own version of a program that’s based on someone else’s code, it’s called forking their code.

  2. Select the URL of your program in the browser address bar and copy it, or just write it down somewhere so you can use it after you create an account.

  3. Click the Login/Sign Up link in the upper-right corner of the screen.

    The Log In page appears, as shown here.

  4. Click the Sign Up link under the login form.

    The Create an Account page appears.

  5. Fill out the Create an Account form and click Create an Account.

    The Edit Your Profile page appears, as shown here. If you like, you can make changes here and save them, but that isn’t required.

  6. Click the Editor link at the top of the screen.

    The main JSFiddle screen appears with your new username in the upper-right corner of the screen.

  7. Paste or type the URL that you saved in Step 2 into the browser address bar and press Return or Enter.

    You’re brought back to your version of the Bubbles demo.

  8. Click Fork again to bring your version of the program into your new JSFiddle account.

    Notice that the URL in the browser address bar now contains your JSFiddle username!
