Will there be an OSX version of your program ?
I'm trying the actions & filters of yours in my privoxy but am not sure if it works on websites or not !
It looks interesting since I'm a long time user of privoxy.

There is no prebuilt version for OSX, and I have no plans to make it. You can either use processed blocklists from downloads page or build the app from sources. Unfortunately, there is no Stack platform for OSX for now, so you'll have to install GHC 7.10 manually. Recently Stack platform became available for OSX as well, so the installation manual is also applicable to OSX now:

Adblock2Privoxy installation

From binary package

There are packages for various systems available at downloads page

  • For linux: you can try RPM or DEB package (depending on your package manager).
  • For windows: Just unzip the file provided. You'll find adblock2privoxy executable is in bin folder.

From sources

You can build and run adblock2privoxy from sources if there is no binary package for your system.

  1. Ensure you have Haskell Stack environment

    • Install Stack for your platform
  2. Build the app:

    stack unpack adblock2privoxy
    cd adblock2privoxy-*
    stack setup
    stack build
  3. Run the app:

    stack exec adblock2privoxy -- [YOUR ARGS]
    #for example: stack exec adblock2privoxy -- -p /etc/privoxy -d


You can create your own binary package for adblock2privoxy.

  1. Use scripts from distribution folder for your platform.
