🖋️ Manifesto

Please report any hosts that are wrongly blocked or sources that do not wholly align in an issue.

Defines the logic behind why a host is permitted or blocked. It has been written to reflect common ideologies across the blacklisting community and those specific to this project.

Complete author bias reflection is not intended, which is why it speaks from the Black Mirror person. Free thought exchange is encouraged, so feel free to open discussions about any points!

🧮 Checksum Evaluation

cat black_domain.txt | sha256sum -c black_domain.checksums --status && echo $?

A return code of 0 means the check was successful. The specific checksum command can be any of the following:

  • md5sum
  • b2sum
  • sha1sum
  • sha224sum
  • sha256sum
  • sha384sum
  • sha512sum

🐙 Fetching GitHub Releases

Provided below are some examples to fetch release artifacts leveraging the GitHub API.

Get all build artifacts

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.3 -H 'Accept: application/vnd.github.v3+json' -sSf | jq -r '.assets[].browser_download_url'

Get a build artifact & its checksum

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.3 -H 'Accept: application/vnd.github.v3+json' -sSf | jq -r '.assets[] | select(.name | startswith("black_domain")).browser_download_url'

Get a single build artifact

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.3 -H 'Accept: application/vnd.github.v3+json' -sSf | jq -r '.assets[] | select(.name | startswith("black_domain")) | select(.name | endswith(".txt")).browser_download_url'

🛠️ Usage

Desktop OS Hosts File

mawk '{print " " $0}' black_domain.txt >>hosts
# mawk '{print ":: " $0}' black_domain.txt >>hosts
mawk '{print " " $0}' black_ipv4.txt >>hosts
mawk '{print ":: " $0}' black_ipv6.txt >>hosts


Many popular platforms such as OpenWRT, DDWRT, and Pihole use DNSmasq as their choice TCP powerhouse. After inspecting many domain blocklists you'll inevitably run across a list in the dnsmasq.conf format. This list doesn't support it because you can use the addn-hosts parameter to add hosts in the list. Target a file that has the hosts in a format similar to the Desktop OS Hosts File format.

If you're using the RADVD daemon, prepend any listed hosts with ::. Otherwise, even if you have IPv6 support set up, prepend hosts with

This has been tested across all the mentioned platforms using dig{6} on a small sample size and had each host null-routed successfully. DNSmasq's man page discusses configuration further, and DDWRT's ad blocking wiki page provides some examples.

Amazon EC2 DNS Resolver

Follow this guide to create a DNS server on a Amazon EC2 instance.


If you'd like to update when some sources do or not extract a production build, just use the single-line list sources.pihole. Note that this list only contains Pihole-compatible sources, and not every handled source. Some manual configuration may also be required.


Similar to dnsmasq, but requires more manual configuration. Name any products as a *.conf file. Then follow Steffinstanly's instructions on how to apply blocklists.


Use the domain list.


Leverage the sources.adguard list or the domain list.
