Why eclipse compillation of mbed bliny takes long time?

I need to use offline mbed-cli in eclipse to have debugging possibility. I installed package of mbed-cli software according to instructions. When I try to compile blinky example it takes few minutes to compile all available libraries when this compillation should takes few seconds. Please look this video to show how it works

Just to compare how it should looks like

What should I do to configu it properly to compile only necessary libraries? Even in case of few minutes compilation, there is still two errors and even in not used libraries and compillation result is fail.

I only quickly checked the videos. My assumption is that the second video is using prebuilt libraries (mbed 2 actually) thus it's much faster. You are compiling entire Mbed OS thus it takes longer.

Some IDE support multiple files compilation at the same time, is this enabled for eclipse?
