[Request] Add the PI-HOLE fonctionnality

Post by mathieubzh »

Hi Fuzion,

Thanks for your great job.
I have found today the PI-HOLE ad-blocker and it's really fun.
It's work with dnsmasq :

With Diet-Pi it's a perfect Distribution.

I've been using gravity.sh (PiHole) on a DietPi home gateway/router for a few weeks. The main advantage is that it censors ads on devices that don't have software adblockers available to them, such as iPhones and iPads, as long as they're connected to the network gateway, of course. Not worth the amount of work involved to install everything just for the adblocking capabilities, in my opinion, but if the installation was automated it'd be a different story.

Hi,

Pi-Hole looks interesting. I'll take a look and see if I can get it added as a DietPi installation option.

Jacob Salmela's tutorial is pretty straightforward but let me know if you want me to post any settings from my working DietPi+PiHole config. PiHole is essentially his script gravity.sh + dnsmasq + lighttpd.

FYI for anyone interested: the coming iOS 9 is said to introduce adblocking capabilities to Apple devices.

I doubt that will last. No doubt business will try to either sue or pay Apple to be on the "whitelist" :) If that fails, no doubt we will see a new method of displaying adverts that are more annoying than current.

Update on PiHole:
PiHole is coded into DietPi. Just waiting for the creator of the PiHole project to give the go ahead, before we can release.

If I'm not mistaken iOS 9 won't be officially released until later this fall, although the beta is indeed currently available to those enrolled in Apple's beta program. I also believe the coming "content-blocking" capabilities woudl not discriminate between popups and regular ad images placed on the webpage itself, because it will rely on a file containing URLs to block just like PiHole does.

Now, I don't mean to go on about iOS as much as I want to mention that PiHole may not be the best suitable option for everyone. I personally have decided to not use PiHole anymore for several reasons.

These reasons include the fact that PiHole's adblocking does not work 100% of the time, and another more important reason is that having a webserver running could in fact be a security liability depending on your setup. See http://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability ... httpd.html and note that the latest lighttpd version available via apt-get from DietPi/Raspbian repo is only 1.4.31
