  1. port pluckeye to Android (unrooted)

    Port Pluckeye to an unrooted Android.

    I am under the impression filtering as Pluckeye conceives it can not be done on mobile devices unless such devices have been rooted or jailbroken by their users. Hence, this idea is likely to go unfulfilled unless somebody more familiar than myself with mobile devices volunteers to take this on.

    If you are willing to root your Android, instead of supporting this suggestion, support
    https://pluckeye.uservoice.com/forums/137031-general/suggestions/15002484-port-pluckeye-to-android-rooted .

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Managing websites in groups

    Would be nice if we could
    1. see the list of allowed/denied sites,
    2. categorise them into groups and
    3. set timing for the whole group

  7. resurrect Abmindicate on Windows

    http://www.pluckeye.net/abmindicate.html was abandoned because of lack of interest from users. If you'd like to use such a tool, vote for it here.

  8. enforce google safe search on linux

    Some users would like google safe search to be enforced. If you would like this on a platform other than linux, please create a separate suggestion.

  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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. port Abmindicate to Mac OS X

    Abmindicate is a tool to drop administrator (i.e. super user / root) priviliges according to a schedule. This allows a user to restrict their "super powers" on their own computer.

    If you would like to see this tool ported to Mac OS X, please vote for it here.

    A Windows-centric introduction to Abmindicate can be found at http://www.pluckeye.net/abmindicate.html.

  15. include a way to whitelist the OS X Mail app.

    Any images showing up in my email, through that app, are blocked. A number of the email lists I'm on include their content in image form.

  16. 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.

  17. History of settings changes (eg: when did I remove blocks)

    Hello,

    I was wondering if it would be possible to have command line option/argument that would retrieve all the changes that have been done to the settings. For example, "20180423 18:05 allow youtube.com"

    I posted more details here https://www.reddit.com/r/pluckeye/comments/8ecsdw/is_there_a_way_to_retrieve_pluckeye_history/

    I think this could be useful as it would allow me to see when I was in the frame of mind to remove some/all blocks. If I would notice, for example, a pattern that in the evening around 8pm I'd set the delay to 0 and allow youtube (with the current delay of 10 mins), then I would try changing the…

  18. 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…

  19. store/retrieve passwords

    Plugins like procon latte, adult blocker etc.. require the user to create a password to change their settings. Similarly one might want to set passwords for parental control filter in google or youtube.

    If the addict is doing this by himself, he would like to set a strong password which he should not have access to during times of weakness.

    The delay trick would here too and should be a reasonably simple extension to the pluck script.

  20. Right click > Block URL

    It would be useful if in a page we could block a link in by right-clicking on it, instead of typing the whole command + url in a shell or going on the page to block it from the Pluckeye's menu. Sometimes - in Chrome for instance - a link may directly start a download, without opening any page.
