Hi Takeshi,

We are aware of the issue with the online compiler and Mbed 2 targets and are currently working on a fix. In the meantime, you can also use the offline Mbed CLI to compile for the micro:bit, a quick start guide for the Mbed CLI is available here: https://os.mbed.com/docs/latest/tutorials/quick-start-offline.html & an easy installation guide is available here: https://os.mbed.com/docs/latest/tools/installation-and-setup.html

Please let me know if you have any questions!

How long will it take to get this fix applied? Working with kids in upcoming workshops and would like to be able to use the site, instead of the CLI.

I'm also wondering if and when this might be fixed as I too have a class I want to teach using this tool and micro:bit?
