Block lists

Post by blockm » Mon Dec 12, 2016 2:44 am

I purchased an ad/content blocker app which has the easylists for the english market in json format but want to add the blocklists for other countries. I want to market them seperatley. How do I convert these easylists so that safari will read them? I have gone to freelancer and upwork for help but no one knows what to do. The lists I have are using the css-display-none command. I am not a programmer so hope I have conveyed the need correctly.

ask the developer of the app.

Maybe to app that you are using does not alow adding more than one subscription list (easylist).

Which app are you using? You should also know that Safari does not allow more than 50,000 filters and EasyList itself contains more than 60,000 filters. Many developers use Easylist without element hiding to counter this others create their own lists.

I am making each language it's own app instead of selecting from a list. The current easylist for the app is in JSON format with css-display-none action. The easylists here appear to be just lists and I can't find anyone who can convert to something Safari will understand. I am muttling through this. I know just enough to know nothing.

The filter lists on this forum are for the ABP extension specifically, that's the format they are listed in here.

You can start by looking at the Apple guide:
https://developer.apple.com/library/con ... ocker.html

There is also an open source content blocker Better, you can look at its source code here:
https://source.ind.ie/better/

You can also look at the source for AdBlock Plus for iOS:
