Add ble-mesh to Thingy:52 to existing project

Hey,

I would like to add BLE mesh functionality to my existing project which is based on the firmware v2.2.0 https://github.com/NordicSemiconductor/Nordic-Thingy52-FW. I’m using GNU Tools ARM Embedded 4.9 2015q3 to compile my code together with a makefile.

I have looked on the mesh demo example at this link: https://github.com/NordicPlayground/Nordic-Thingy52-mesh-demo and would like to add the BLE-mesh functionality from that example into my existing project.

But the example is based on a Segger project and the sensor initiation functions differs a lot from the Thingy52 firmware v2.2.0 that my existing project is based on. So I don’t know if the mesh demo example at this link: https://github.com/NordicPlayground/Nordic-Thingy52-mesh-demo will be a good starting point when trying to implement BLE-mesh functionality into my existing project.

My question is if you think the mesh demo example at this link: https://github.com/NordicPlayground/Nordic-Thingy52-mesh-demo will be a good starting point when trying to implement BLE-mesh functionality into a project that is using GNU Tools ARM Embedded 4.9 2015q3 to compile with a makefile. Or does anyone have any other recommendation for a good starting point when trying to add BLE-mesh to a Thingy:52 project that is based on firmware v2.2.0?

My final goal is to send integers or strings between devices in a BLE-mesh network.
