 > Answers to the questions on https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook
 /design-decisions/#whitelisting-oembed-providers would help this get in

 * Is the service is popular enough for core developers to have heard of it
 before? Is it “mainstream?”
         * Pretty sure they've all heard of it, yes.
 * If similar services are already supported, how does this service compare
 in terms of size, features, and backing?
         * Maybe cloudup.com is similar? But codepen, obviously, is for
 code only. It's a very popular service.
 * Does this service have a large following on Twitter, Facebook, or other
 social media?  Is its Twitter account verified?
         * 41.1k followers on Twitter.
 * Is its oEmbed endpoint clearly established and properly documented?
 (Sometimes, they are just a developer’s pet project that may not be
         * Yes, established (2 years) and supported:
 * Does the service make an effort to build relationships with developers,
 such as through robust APIs?
         * Yes, it is, after all, a service FOR developers.
 * How old is the service?
         * 4 years or so, based on blog archives.
 * Does it have a well-established Wikipedia article? (Seriously.)
         * No
 * Has anyone written a WordPress plugin that leverages the service in some
 way, whether adding it as an oEmbed provider, creating a shortcode, or
 leveraging other APIs of the service? Do these plugins have any noticeable
 adoption or traction that would indicate usage and demand?
         * Yes. http://wordpress.org/plugins/codepen-oembed/
 * Is the provider frequently proposed?
         * See this ticket.

 > In addition, if Codepen supports oEmbed discovery and uses an iframe for
 its oEmbeds, it will be supported via the oEmbed discovery which was
 enabled along with WordPress embeds in 4.4.

 Just tested, and it appears it does indeed work w/ the discovery feature.
