Pi-hole API

Work in progress HTTP API for Pi-hole. The API reads FTL's shared memory so it can directly read the statistics FTL generates. This API is the replacement for most of FTL's socket/telnet API, as well as the PHP API of the pre-5.0 web interface.

Getting Started (Development)

  • Install Rust: https://www.rust-lang.org/tools/install
    • Currently the project uses Rust nightly. The exact version used is stored in rust-toolchain. The version should be detected and used automatically when you run a Rust command in the project directory, such as cargo check (this is a feature of rustup)
    • After installing, make sure the Rust tools are on your PATH:
      source ~/.cargo/env
      
  • Install your distro's build tools
    • build-essential for Debian distros, gcc-c++ and make for RHEL distros
  • Install libsqlite3
    • libsqlite3-dev for Debian distros, sqlite-devel for RHEL
  • Fork the repository and clone to your computer (not the Pi-hole). In production the Pi-hole only needs the compiled output of the project, not its source code
    • Checkout the development branch for the latest changes.
  • Run cargo check. This will download the Rust nightly toolchain and project dependencies, and it will check the program for errors. If everything was set up correctly, the final output should look like this:
        Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 1m 11s
    
  • Run cargo test. This will compile and run the tests. They should all pass 😉
  • If you've never used Rust, you should look at the documentation, including the Rust Book, before diving too deep into the code.
  • When you are ready to make changes, make a branch off of development in your fork to work in. When you're ready to make a pull request, base the PR against development.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
