I just came across RStudio Cloud with Stan -- https://rstudio.cloud/project/56157
This is awesome (and I wish it was the first link on the Stan website)!
That said, I can't seem to get it to work for me. When I try to fit the 8schools example, I get the error below. Note that when I test the C++ toolchain using pkgbuild::has_build_tools(debug = TRUE) the response is "TRUE".
Error in compileCode(f, code, language = language, verbose = verbose) :
