How do you import code into the mbed online compiler


I'm trying to get up and running on mbed.

When I go to import the intial example blinky application into my online compiler it just gets stuck saying "Importing...please wait."

After 5 minutes or so there is no progress. Am I doing this wrong? Or is the online compiler no longer supported?


For reference, I am on Chrome 62 with no content blocking enabled.

As someone new to this setup, is it common that mbed is offline? Is there a status page? Or known good tools such as "Works on Firefox on Windows, Does not work on Chrome on Mac"?

Edit: It appears importing using the "Import into Compiler" option fails but using the IDE's builtin "Import" button succeeds. Is there a "Issues" page to submit bugs to the mbed online compiler team?

This issue has been fixed and "Import into Compiler" functionality from the repository page is working as expected.

Hello, I'm experiencing the same issue: "Importing" message hangs. Has the "fix" been tested on the latest online compile?

Hi Paul, I am going through the same issue today. I started playing with a STM32 module yesterday and the "import into compiler" option worked correctly. I think that might be a problem related to the mbed compiler. Hope it can be worked out soon. If you have further information, please let me know
