IMPORTANT:
These modules contain modifed framework-res.apk's from Oxygen OS 9.5.11 and 9.5.13. It was taken from the international stock rom. I would not recommend trying this if you are not using either of these versions.
Be aware that if you have Chrome enabled, the system will automatically disable Bromite webview until you disable Chrome.
After flashing this your theme may be changed to light. All you need to do is go back to settings>display and choose the dark theme again one time.

DESCRIPTION:
This module contains a framework-res.apk with modified values in res/xml/config_webview_packages.xml to allow com.android.webview -- which is the package name used by bromite -- as one of the allowed webview providers. This has been tested to work when used in conjunction with the Bromite Systemless Webview module in magisk.

INSTALLATION:
Make sure you uninstall or at least disable the default (Chrome) webview package first. (I used the Debloater module from magisk to do this).
Make sure you have the "Bromite Systemless Webview" Magisk module installed.
Change the extension of the downloaded file to ".zip"
Flash the zip using magisk
Go to Settings -> System -> Developer Options -> WebView Implementation and ensure that Bromite is chosen for WebView

UPDATES:
10/3/19
Working module for OOS 9.5.13 is now available. (OOS 10 version will eventually be released as well.)

How is this different from the bromite webview magisk extension in the Xposed ? Is this a better implementation?

I haven't used Xposed for a long time so i'm not sure which module you're referring to, but here is why I made this magisk module:

From what I've read and experienced, with OOS, even when Bromite WebView is installed as a system app, it's not used for webview because the framework-res.apk does not include com.android.webview as an allowed webview provider package. You can read about this in the bromite wiki under Verifying allowed webview packages.

This package is intended to work alongside the systemless bromite webview module by providing a framework-res that declares it an allowed webview provider package.

This worked a treat after spending way too much time trying to remove Chrome (Debloater didn't work). Now everything is good, no ads, and working smoothly. Thanks!

I don't see an option for this, but I could be wrong

I believe it would be fairly easy. I will release a version offering both when I am back at my computer which will probably be Monday
