How to build the minimal thread device (MTD) for Lopy4 mesh networking?
I would like to build a minimal thread device (MTD) for Lopy4. The mesh announcement says "The MTD (Minimal Thread Device) can be obtained with an additional build (recompile)". So how does it work in detail?
thank you very much! This answers my question. I would like to evaluate the mesh networking functions for a project at our university. The devices are energy constrained and expected to consume as little energy as possible. For this usecase I would like to use a Sleepy End Device or at least a Minimal End Device.
I will use the CLI in combination with disabling the router role for a first evaluation.

The pycom-esp-idf needs to be recompiled with
CXXFLAGS += -DOPENTHREAD_MTD=1:
Why do you need MTD?
You could also disable Router Role, at run-time, using CLI command: https://github.com/openthread/openthread/blob/master/src/cli/README.md#routerrole
A note, the sleep of Lopy4 while the MTD has nothing to do, it's not ported (or I didn't tested it).
