How to compile the latest mbed os 5.8?

Hi Team,

I downloaded the latest zipped source code of mbed-os-5.8.4 from official link: https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os/releases/tag/mbed-os-5.8.4

But how can I build it for my Nordic target board, which is nRF52 DK?

Hi Cake,

If you've pulled down the OS, the easiest method is to use the Mbed CLI which is documented here along with a tutorial: https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-cli https://os.mbed.com/docs/v5.8/tutorials/quick-start-offline.html

To target the nRF52DK you will use one of these commands depending on the toolchain you have:

  mbed compile -m nrf52_dk -t arm
  mbed compile -m nrf52_dk -t gcc_arm
  mbed compile -m nrf52_dk -t iar

You will also need to have a source file that has main().
