Hey, fellow developers!

When you announce a new version in a toot/tweet/post, please, do not hesitate to put a couple of words on what the project does.

I'm really glad to know that "X" has now "Y" support but it's kinda a useless info if I don't even know what "X" is.

I really would appreciate it. Thanks!

TBlock is in the way to be fully re-written. Currently, the converter has been really improved, and the quality of the code, too.

You can see changes here:

TBlock's website: no third-party requests and almost no javascript (the only script is used to show credits to fontawesome in the console)

TBlock 0.0.5 will probably be released at the same time, by the way.

We are really sorry to see that there are issues with our RPM & Debian packages.

We will fix that as soon as possible (it will be done at the end of the week), we have a lot of work right now.
Thanks for your comprehension.

Maybe TBlock is going to have a GUI in the future. Which python framework should it use (Tkinter, GTK, Qt) ?

Which one is the most accessible ?

Going more private has a lot of old school attitude.

Don't use credit cards, use cash (of course no Apple Pay etc.). Don't use google maps, learn where you need to go and figure it out like you did a decade ago. Don't listen to streaming music, listen to music you downloaded.

What would you do if there was no big tech companies to hold your hand? Will you be lost?

TBlock 0.0.3 has been released !

New changes:
+ Added compatibility with Opera filters
+ Added a new mirror
* Patched a few issues (like errors on Termux)

Update now or download the package/binary at:

Even if TBlock does it, it could still be a good idea to your file before subscribing to filters or adding rules.

Please remember, that after installing TBlock on your machine, you should ALWAYS sync the remote filter repository.

Also, a good first step is to read the README, or the wiki, which explains how to use TBlock and its built-in filter converter.

TBlock version 0.0.1 has been released !

It is currently a pre-release, to ensure that bugs (if there are any) will be patched before any official release.
