  2. Allow website for amount of time per day (eg 1hr per day), not just period of time (eg 7pm to 8pm)

    Eg. If facebook is allowed for 1 hr per day, you can visit the website in four 15 minute increments throughout the day, or a single 1 hr session, after which facebook will be blocked. It could also be allowed for 1hr between a certain time period, such as 7pm to 10pm. There are MANY common use cases where this feature would be needed. Imagine you want to watch a bit of netflix every other evening after work for instance. You only know you'll reach home between 7pm to 10pm, but you're not sure of the exact hour. This is…

  4. Filttering by keywords

    HTTPS is literally everywhere, so it's difficult to implement keyword filtering.

    However it helps when blocking downloads of softwares especially on a protocol other than https or p2p like ftp, etc.

  5. Block .onion websites

    For privacy reasons .onion websites are written in gibberish text & it's difficult to asses what content lies behind the URL.

    So it would be better to implement a feature in pluckeye which blocks all .onion sites by default.

  7. ability to delay, but not block, websites

    It would be nice if I was able to "delay" the loading of certain websites by say 30 seconds or a user-entered amount. (see the title/hover text of https://xkcd.com/862/) This feature may not be useful as a porn filter, but it would still be useful in cutting down on compulsively checking innocent websites and/or preventing "binges." For me, the big problem sites are YouTube (videos allowed) and Reddit (without vids or pics), which have lots of good information, and are mostly safe from porn (when setup as described), but can also suck me in for hours on end.

  8. Keywords block with spaces

    Please can you add the feature to block searches with specific keywords with both space & asterisk feature like 'fuck me' instead of '*fuck*'. Both asterisk & space feature should be there. Sorry for inappropriate words.

  9. Regex support for pluckeye config

    It would be useful if we could set rules in pluckeye using regular expressions, in order to block urls by two or more keywords.

  11. have different delay times to change from blocked to allowed and neutral to allowed

    Whenever I want to watch porn, I will simply allow the website for a time so I need to have a high delay time however, this becomes annoying when I discover a new website that is SFW. So I am suggesting the ability to have a different delay time when I am allowing/ reverting a blocked website as to when I am allowing a website which I have never been on. Thank you.

  12. improve support for the App Store and/or iTunes

    Currently, on Mac OS X machines, the App Store is blocked when at installation level 2. This suggestion is to improve support for the App Store and/or iTunes so that they can still be used even while Pluckeye is at level 2.

    The current workaround for using the App Store is to drop down to level 1 temporarily.

  14. make it easier to see the list of currently-active rules

    == The problem ==

    When using Pluckeye 0.50.4, to see the list of currently-active rules, you must run "pluck export".

    This is confusing. The word "export" sounds like it's for exporting data to a file, not for displaying information.

    == Proposed solution ==

    It would be good if you could please make "pluck ls" and "pluck rules" do the same thing as "pluck export".

    * "pluck ls" is good for people who like Unix.

    * "pluck rules" is for people who don't know anything about Unix. My only hesitation is that "rules" is a rather-generic term, and if you use…

  16. Incorporate time limits on certain sites

    Say I wanted to limit myself to only 10 minutes of Facebook before having to work on other stuff. It'd be awesome to see a way to do this in PluckEye.

    Basically, I would visit Facebook, and Pluckeye would give me 10 minutes to do so. After 10 minutes, the site is blocked for another amount of time, like 30 minutes. After those 30 minutes, I could once again visit Facebook for 10 minutes.

    If I took an hour between facebook visits, it would still allow me those 10 minutes before shutting me off for the next 30 minutes.

  18. port pluckeye to iOS

    Forked from http://pluckeye.uservoice.com/forums/137031-general/suggestions/6474260-port-pluckeye-to-android .

    I am under the impression filtering as Pluckeye conceives it can not be done on iOS unless the device has been jailbroken by the user. Hence, this idea is likely to go unfulfilled unless somebody more familiar than myself with iOS volunteers to take this on.

    Lacking an iOS device, I am unsure how good or bad the present solutions are on that platform; http://filters.pluckeye.net/?os=ios might be a starting place for an alternative.

    2. categorise them into groups and
    3. set timing for the whole group

  20. make it easy to see why Pluckeye denies access

    When access is denied, knowing what in Pluckeye's settings led to the denial would be convenient. This suggestion is to make such information more apparent to the user.
