Maza ad blocking
Simple and efficient local ad blocking throughout the network.
- You don't have to install any browser extensions or applications, you just use the tools of your operating system.
- You update the list of DNS to be blocked with a single stroke.
- Just bash.
📡 Update database
sudo maza start
- bash 4.0 or higher
Then you do this.
curl -o maza https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tanrax/maza-ad-blocking/master/maza chmod +x maza sudo mv maza /usr/local/bin
Unfortunately the hosts file does not support sub-domains (wildcards), which is necessary to correctly filter all DNS. You will need to install locally a server for that purpose, Maza supports the Dnsmasq format. Here's an example for OSX.
brew install dnsmasq
Edit the file.
Add the following lines.
conf-file=(your user path)/.maza/dnsmasq.conf
sudo brew services stop dnsmasq sudo brew services start dnsmasq
3 Tell your OS to use your DNS server
Delete the list of OSX DNS servers and add the 3 addresses. The first one will be your local server, and the other 2 belong to OpenDNS, which you can use any other.
127.0.0.1 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
Refresh your DNS cache
sudo dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
Extra: dnsmasq is in charge of solving all DNS
Add in confiigure file:
no-resolv server=18.104.22.168 server=22.214.171.124
Extra: dnsmasq have test domains
If you want all your
.localhost domains, for example, point to localhost add in confiigure file:
- Only compatible with Linux and OSX operating systems.
