You can save your work using one of the options in the Share menu. You will get a link that you can either save somewhere, for example in a text file, or send to someone via email.
Note: each time you make a change to your code, you will get a new link.

If you want to create an account on Trinket, follow the steps below. This will allow you to access your work easily from any computer, and to remix projects somebody else has shared with you. Remixing means you will save a copy of a project to you Trinket account so you can make your own changes to it.

  • Go to the Trinket website and click Sign Up For Your Free Account. You will need an email address to sign up.

  • Enter your email address and choose a password, or ask somebody to do this for you.

  • You can now access all your saved or remixed projects by clicking on your username and going to My Trinkets.
