X is broken, can you fix it?!
Probably… please create a Bug Report on the repo for me to look at it.
Can you add X to PADD?
Maybe… please create a Feature Request on the repo for me to look at it.
I think I fixed X. Can I add it to PADD?
Sure… make a new Pull Request and I’ll take a look.
What screens are supported?
PADD has only been “officially” tested on a 3.5" PiTFT display. It also works on any terminal emulator (Terminal.app, iTerm, PuTTY, etc.). It has also been in use by other users on several other third-party displays.
What version of Pi-hole is supported?
Generally speaking, the latest version of Pi-hole at the time the a new version of PADD is released. However, if there is an update to Pi-hole, there is a small chance that PADD may break.
I’m on the beta version of Pi-hole and the display is messed up. Will there be support for the development branch of Pi-hole?
No. My Pi-hole, and by extension my PADD, runs in my house with the following goals:
- don’t screw up the internet for for my work-from-home/VPN setup, and
- don’t screw up the internet.
For those reasons, PADD will only ever support the latest stable release of Pi-hole.
What does PADD mean?
Personal Access Display Device… also “Pi-hole Ad Detection Display”…
“Pi-hole Ad Detection Display”? Does that mean you're part of the Pi-hole team?
Nope, PADD is a third-party application that isn’t affiliated with the official Pi-hole project.
Who are you? How can I get a hold of you?
