Frequently Asked Questions
How long are bins kept for?
They're kept indefinitely. In JS Bin's early life, back in 2008, we removed them after not being seen for 3 months, but that's long been removed. Bins are permanent.
How can I clear the console?
ctrl+l from any panel, or using code:
Can I run a Gist in JS Bin?
How does the error checking work?
Error checking is provided by the JSHint project. Like JSLint, but maintained and with a lovely API so it can plug it into JS Bin.
Can I show just a single specific panel when loading a bin?
Appending a panel name to the query string will ensure that JS Bin only opens those specific panels. This is useful if you don't want the output to open for instance.
The valid values are: html, js, css, console, output.
How do I re-run or re-render the code?
Just click the "Run with JS" button, and your entire code will re-run, or ctrl (or cmd) + enter.
Can JS Bin respond to Ajax requests?
Yes. See the Ajax debugging video for a demo. Or, it's as simple as removing the HTML output, saving the code, then requesting the URL via a new snippet. JS Bin will respond to Ajax requests appropriately.
How do I delete my account?
Raise an issue with your username requested that we delete your account, and we'll do as asked.
