Have been thinking about deploying pihole for awhile. But just came across adguard:

Better cross platform and looks like a bit of an easier code base to get into. Golang, using packr.

@geekgonecrazy PiHole and AdGuard are absurd bloat. Just install Unbound, throw a script + timer at it to keep the lists updated. DNS resolvers don't need websoykaf interfaces.

@brian something like this is often difference between something being put in place vs nothing. Messing with DNS resolvers by hand is not something I do often. So to me its a giant unknown. VS something I know I can click in the UI and operate.

I know for sure that it can be more efficient if I wanted to invest the time in setup with scripts. Convience often wins though.
