AG Filters Registry

This repository contains the known filters subscriptions available to AdGuard users. We re-host these filters on Also, these filters can be slightly modified in order to achieve better compatibility with AdGuard.

Filters metadata

  • template.txt

    Template file is used by the filters compiler to prepare the final filter version.

  • exclude.txt

    A list of regular expressions. Rules that match these exclusions will not be included in the resulting filter.

  • metadata.json

    Filter metadata. Includes name, description, etc.

    • filterId - unique filter identifier (integer);

    • name - filter name. Can be localized (we'll cover it later);

    • description - filter description;

    • timeAdded - time when this filter was added to the registry. Milliseconds since January 1, 1970. You can exec new Date().getTime() in the browser console to get the current time;

    • homepage - filter website/homepage;

    • expires - filter's default expiration period;

    • displayNumber - this number is used when AdGuard sorts available filters (GUI);
