I just finished using this guide to get Blocky set up. Part 2 shows how to set up the grafana dashboard.

I was inspired to set up blocky instead of the other more popular alternatives due to his other video showing that blocky has the best latency of all

blocky vs pihole vs adguard

    Good to see a detailed guide. Blocky sounds really interesting. I used pi-hole first and switched to adguard-home for it’s dot/doh features. Blocky could be best of both world’s, but the missing interface is problematic, or isn’t it?

      I do wish there was a web interface. It’s easier footgun yourself with an all text configuration. That said, I choose to use Blocky purely based on the performance. There is a web interface someone made but I think it’s really early stages. https://github.com/Mozart409/blocky-frontend

      What I see is that you can disable blocking (which is possible in the grafana dashboard), refresh the block list (which happens automatically when you restart the service), and run a dns query. Configuration of any sort doesn’t appear to be possible from this project.
