Brave Browser


This repository holds the build tools needed to build the Brave desktop browser for macOS, Windows, and Linux. In particular, it fetches and syncs code from the projects we define in package.json and src/brave/DEPS:

  • Chromium
    • Fetches code via depot_tools.
    • sets the branch for Chromium (ex: 65.0.3325.181).
  • brave-core
    • Mounted at src/brave.
    • Maintains patches for 3rd party Chromium code.
  • ad-block
    • Mounted at src/brave/vendor/ad-block.
    • Implements Brave’s ad-block engine.
  • tracking-protection
    • Mounted at src/brave/vendor/tracking-protection.
    • Implements Brave’s tracking-protection engine.
