Do we want 1hosts blocklist?

Someone brought this blocklist to my attention. What do you think guys, would you like to see it in the app? Anyone tried it?

They seem like good lists. Will the host list containing with just wild cards will work in Blokada like this one?

Yes I believe those kind of wildcards are already supported, but I actually haven’t tried this list yet, we will have to see. Good idea though!

Generally a good idea.
I’d like to bring two points to your attention:
First thing: it makes Facebook unusable. The site describes which domains need to be allowed to work again, but who of our users is going to check the repo of a list they subscribe to?
Second thing: the repo doesn’t mention, which Host lists are included in that Host list, but I assume, that these 100,000 domains are not all collected by badmojr, but also a collection of list merged together with some unique hosts. (Especially, as Ador seems to be involved as well.) I’d like this to be verified first.

Edit: Edited ‘not a bad idea’ to ‘a good idea’

Hi Everyone!! I wanna try 1hosts in Blokada but I am confused to use which file. Shoud I use hosts.txt or domains.txt or wildcards.txt or adblock.txt?




Thanks in advance :smile:

Hey:)
Awesome, that’s cool! Sorry, didn’t find it. I gotta be picky again. You say it’s [quote=“badmojr, post:7, topic:903”]
containing URLs to a bunch of files used to make 1Hosts blocklists
[/quote]. I understand that these are all sources you use. Is that correct:)?

Well!
I do use all those files to make the Pro variants.
When it comes to the Complete & mini variants, I cherrypick i.e use only some of the sources and/or domains used in the Pro versions.

It’s dang complex…!

Aha, yeah, I can only imagine how complex it must be:)
So this answers my question every source you use gets listed. For the variants you only use some/parts of those lists. Thank you for the effort you put in:)

My pleasure!

Trying it out now. Went full version of the host list where it clearly (now at least) says blokada.

Brings me up to: 214,750 rules (my drop in a few minties)

Update: used from above post to about an hour ago Winner I put v5 on my work profile. I forgot that also updated my personal profiles version.

It seemed to work just fine. The rules didn’t drop after a few minutes but it also didn’t seem to block anything that I didn’t want to blocked. And nothing was broken 4o any more significant degree.

I did seem to have an easier time restoring functions of the fancy social media buttons and drop down menus without having to restore as many things…that just might be me getting better at it though too
