Integrate updated ABP bundle with self contained ABB API

ABB integration with ABP bundle was done by injecting an api JS snippet into already existing ABP background script. The snippet was part of ABB native bundle, not the ABP crx bundle. That brings great flexibility in developing/fixing the integration against a stable ABP crx, but basically prevents simple crx updates. Now that the integration is reasonably stable, crx updatability is more important than easy hackability. The standalone snippet must become an integral testable part of the crx.

What to change

Remove ABB logic for injecting a standalone api.js on the native side.
Change ABB logic to work with the new api.js bundled with ABP crx.


Verify that all ABP bundle integration points keep working normally. The browser should behave as expected according to the settings (acceptable ads, whitelisting, etc.) Switches changed in any native browser screen must stay in the changed state when the screen is left and entered again.

  • enable/disable whitelisting in main browser menu
  • add/remove language subscriptions
  • more blocking options
  • acceptable ads on/off
  • removing whitelisted site
