Code Savings Guide for Building Matter Applications#
Remove unnecessary clusters from the zap configuration. Example applications have clusters enabled to support both Thread and WiFi transport layers such as the Diagnostics clusters.
Remove optional features in Matter that may not be needed for a certain application. In the EFR32 build script, there are additional build arguments that are added to either add or remove optional Matter features. For example, added a build argument disable_lcd=true will save flash by disabling the lcd screen.
For inspiration, a minimalistic lighting application is provided in the Silicon Labs Matter Github repo under
silabs_examples/lighting-lite-app. This example showcases the minimal requirements to build a lighting application over the Thread protocol.
