How to create a ".mbedignore" file with the online compiler?

As described in the Mbed OS build rules section of Mbed documentation, the .mbedignore file enables to exclude files from a build. It works nicely when building offline with mbed-cli but I was not able to figure out how to create such file with the online compiler. In addition, after importing a project that included .mbedignore no such file was listed in the online compiler. Can anyone point me to the right direction?

Thank you and best regards, Zoltan.

Hi Zoltan,

Well, technically it's not possible because you can only create files with known extensions, but there is a tricky way.

We already file this request in ticket, but just don't have a target date.

Thank you Desmond for the tip! It works.
