Getting involved

We encourage you to participate in this open source project. We love Pull Requests, Bug Reports, ideas, (security) code reviews or any kind of positive contribution.

Building the code

As of April 2019, this project requires the following versions of dependencies:

  • MacOS Mojave
  • Xcode 10.1
  • Node.js 9
  • Cocoapods 1.5.3

Make sure you have homebrew installed:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
brew update

Then setup the project following these steps:

  1. Install Xcode 10.1
  • Open the .xip archive
  • Move Xcode to Application folder
  • Setup Xcode and install CLI tools with the following commands:
sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/Xcode.app
xcode-select --install
  1. Install Node.js 9 (recommended: use nvm) + latest npm (this assumes you are using bash as your shell, if not, replace bash by your shell in the following commands):
brew install curl
curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.34.0/install.sh | bash
source ~/.bashrc
nvm install 9
npm install -g npm@6.7.0
  1. Install Carthage
brew install carthage
  1. Install Ruby bundler:
sudo gem install bundler
  1. Fork the repository https://github.com/ghostery/browser-ios from GitHub UI
  2. Clone the forked repository + add upstream remote:
git clone https://github.com/YOUR_USERNAME/ghostery-ios
cd ghostery-ios
git remote add upstream https://github.com/ghostery/browser-ios
git fetch upstream
git checkout upstream/master
git checkout -b my-working-branch
  1. Pull in the project dependencies:
sh ./bootstrap.sh
npm run bundle-ghostery
# Or for Cliqz: npm run bundle-cliqz
# Or for Lumen: npm run bundle-lumen
rm -rf Pods
bundle install
bundle exec pod install
npm run postinstall
  1. Open Client.xcworkspace in Xcode.
  2. Build the Ghostery/Cliqz/Lumen scheme in Xcode.

Note: When you run bundle install, you might get following error An error occurred while installing unf_ext (, and Bundler cannot continue.. Above error happens with ruby 2.5.1. Just make sure to use 2.5.3 ruby version rvm use 2.5.3 and problem will be fixed.

Building User Scripts

User Scripts (JavaScript injected into the WKWebView) are compiled, concatenated and minified using webpack. User Scripts to be aggregated are placed in the following directories:

|-- /Frontend
    |-- /UserContent
        |-- /UserScripts
            |-- /AllFrames
            |   |-- /AtDocumentEnd
            |   |-- /AtDocumentStart
            |-- /MainFrame
                |-- /AtDocumentEnd
                |-- /AtDocumentStart

This reduces the total possible number of User Scripts down to four. The compiled output from concatenating and minifying the User Scripts placed in these folders resides in /Client/Assets and are named accordingly:

  • AllFramesAtDocumentEnd.js
  • AllFramesAtDocumentStart.js
  • MainFrameAtDocumentEnd.js
  • MainFrameAtDocumentStart.js

To simplify the build process, these compiled files are checked-in to this repository. When adding or editing User Scripts, these files can be re-compiled with webpack manually. This requires Node.js to be installed and all required npm packages can be installed by running npm install in the root directory of the project. User Scripts can be compiled by running the following npm command in the root directory of the project:

npm run build

Contributor guidelines

Swift style

  • Swift code should generally follow the conventions listed at https://github.com/raywenderlich/swift-style-guide.
    • Exception: we use 4-space indentation instead of 2.


  • New code should not contain any trailing whitespace.
  • We recommend enabling both the "Automatically trim trailing whitespace" and "Including whitespace-only lines" preferences in Xcode (under Text Editing).
  • git rebase --whitespace=fix can also be used to remove whitespace from your commits before issuing a pull request.


  • Each commit should have a single clear purpose. If a commit contains multiple unrelated changes, those changes should be split into separate commits.
  • If a commit requires another commit to build properly, those commits should be squashed.
  • Follow-up commits for any review comments should be squashed. Do not include "Fixed PR comments", merge commits, or other "temporary" commits in pull requests.
