so, is really neat. but it also shows that a carefully maintained /etc/hosts works nicely, too. less requests and blocked requests on that machine through pi-hole than e.g. on an android device.

also great: running on a router and having a network wide hosts file with aggregated block lists. can be automated via a small script which is executed on boot. pi-hole is similar but also comes with a nice admin ui and "just works".

@jotbe I’m thankful someone decided to build a script I can run as cron job for UniFi which collects different blacklists and allows whitelisting community.ubnt.com/t5/UniFi-Ro

Requires dnsmasq, so not necessarily working in other environments the blacklist sources could be interesting. Fairly aggressive, even NewRelic blocked

@fallenhitokiri very nice. the openwrt approach also uses dnsmasq where i simply add my custom hosts list. re whitelisting: pi-hole supports whitelisting and more. in the shell script for openwrt i simply remove certain entries from the blacklist with a pipe and grep. does the job but is not very userfriendly.
