A python3 wrapper for the pihole api that aims to eventually be a full replacement for the AdminLTE web panel

Project description

PyPI version

PiHole-api

A python3 wrapper for the pihole api that aims to eventually be a full replacement for the AdminLTE web panel

Installing

To install the package from pip, first run:

python3 -m pip install --no-cache-dir PiHole-api

Due to naming issues, inside python, the package is named pihole not PiHole-api. Keeping this in mind, let's import it.

import pihole as ph

Usage

This library has many features that can be broken down in to two simple sections. Stats, and Controls. In order to use any of the functions, you must first import the library, then create a PiHole object.

# Import the library
import pihole as ph

# Create an object
pihole = ph.PiHole("<ip address of server>")

Throuought this README, I will assume that you are using the name pihole for your object

Stats

Checking the current version data can be done using:

pihole.getVersion()

It will return a json object that will look like:

{'core_update': False, 'web_update': False, 'FTL_update': False, 'core_current': 'v4.0', 'web_current': 'v4.0', 'FTL_current': 'v4.0', 'core_latest': 'v4.0', 'web_latest': 'v4.0', 'FTL_latest': 'v4.0', 'core_branch': 'master', 'web_branch': 'master', 'FTL_branch': ''}

To refresh all stat-related data:

pihole.refresh()

To access the fetched data, use these self-descriptive variables:

pihole.status
pihole.domain_count
pihole.queries
pihole.blocked
pihole.ads_percentage
pihole.unique_domains
pihole.forwarded
pihole.cached
pihole.total_clients
pihole.unique_clients
pihole.total_queries

If you have already authenticated, the refresh() function will also return data about the top devices, forward destinations, and query types. These can be accessed using:

# Top devices
pihole.top_devices

# Forward destinations
pihole.forward_destinations

# Query types
pihole.query_types

To get data about the last gravity update, use:

pihole.gravity_last_updated

It will return a json object that looks like:

{'file_exists': True, 'absolute': 1534793121, 'relative': {'days': '0', 'hours': '00', 'minutes': '42'}}

You can also get the graph data using:

pihole.getGraphData()

The data it returns looks like this:

You can grab just the domain data by using:

pihole.getGraphData()["domains"]

And just the ads data by using:

pihole.getGraphData()["ads"]

To refresh the top data, first authenticate, then use:

pihole.refreshTop(10)

Replace the 10 with how many results you want back.

The top data can then be fetched using:

pihole.top_queries # returns all top queries

# Or

pihole.top_ads # returns all top ads

To view all queries, use:

pihole.getAllQueries()

This returns a list of lists containing data about all queries. Fore more info, see the getAllQueries section of: https://discourse.pi-hole.net/t/pi-hole-api/1863

To get the filesize of the database file, use:

pihole.getDBfilesize()

To get the contents of your white/black list, use:

pihole.getList("black")

"black" can be replaced with "white" to get your whitelist

Controls

First, you must log in. Use the password you set or where given by the installer (the same one you use on the web control panel)

pihole.authenticate(password)

To enable pihole, authenticate, then use:

pihole.enable()

To disable pihole, authenticate, then use:

pihole.disable(10)

replace 10 with the number of seconds that you want to disable pihole for.

Add a domain to one of your lists:

pihole.add("black", "google.com")

The example blacklists google.com. Replacing black with one of: white, black, wild, regex, or audit will change the list to be added to. To remove a domain form a list, replace add() with sub()
