Circuit Playground Bluefruit and Makecode.adafruit

I am have issues activating programs onto the Circuit Playground Bluefruit from Makecode. We can get the code onto the board by dragging it from downloads onto the board in Finder, but the program will not run. Does anyone have an idea on how to make it work? We are using the code and setup from the Distance Measurement with Ultrasound project linked below.

I do not think that MakeCode supports the CPB, only the CPX. According to this -- https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-circuit-playground-bluefruit -- you would have to use a beta version of the Maker version of MakeCode, not the Adafruit version. (Disclaimer: I haven't tried either.)

Thanks adavid7. We have tried out the beta version on the https://maker.makecode.com/# and it seems to be working so far.
