Note that WebKit content blockers are fairly limited. Hence, not all filters can be converted (in a compatible way), and some differences compared to Adblock Plus for other browsers are expected.
This script is used to convert the filter lists for Adblock Plus for iOS.
The required packages can be installed via NPM:
The filterClasses module in
node_modules/filterClasses.js is generated from
the module in the
adblockpluscore repository. It has been generated using
JS Hydra, and small modifications made. If you need to re-generate the file run
this command (adjusting the paths as appropriate):
python buildtools/jshydra/abp_rewrite.py adblockpluscore/lib/filterClasses.js | grep -vi filterNotifier > ../abp2blocklist/node_modules/filterClasses.js
You will then need to remove any references to the
utils module from the
generated file by hand.
node abp2blocklist.js < easylist.txt > easylist.json
Unit tests live in the
tests/ directory. To run the unit tests ensure you have
already installed the required packages (see above) and then type this command:
