In this blog we will discuss about “How to make Website Blocker using Python“. Website Blocker is a tool that will help you to block some website that is specified by you that you don’t want to allow to be open on your PC or Laptop. This project will help you to stay away from their distraction by blocking that websites from your device.
In this Python Website Blocker Project, the user can enter multiple websites to block, and then clicking on the block button will check the condition that if the website already blocked then print ‘already blocked’ else blocked all that websites and print ‘blocked’.
To install the Tkinter Library, we can use this pip install command
pip install tkinter.
Steps to Build Website Blocker:
- Import the Tkinter Module
- Create display window
- Create an entry widget
- Define blocker function
- Create a block function
1. Importing the tkinter module
from tkinter import *
This will import all methods of tkinter library.
2. Create display window
root = Tk() root.geometry('600x300') root.resizable(0,0) root. title("StudyGyaan - Website Blocker") Label(root, text ='WEBSITE BLOCKER' , font ='arial 20 bold').pack() Label(root, text ='StudyGyaan' , font ='arial 20 bold').pack(side=BOTTOM)
geometry()set the width and height of the window
resizable(0,0)set the fixed size of the window
title()used to set the title of the window
3. Create an entry widget
host_path ='C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts' ip_address = '127.0.0.1' Label(root, text ='Enter Website :' , font ='arial 13 bold').place(x=5 ,y=60) Websites = Text(root,font = 'arial 10',height='2', width = '40', wrap = WORD, padx=5, pady=5) Websites.place(x= 140,y = 60)
4. Define blocker function
def Blocker(): website_lists = Websites.get(1.0,END) Website = list(website_lists.split(",")) with open (host_path , 'r+') as host_file: file_content = host_file.read() for website in Website: if website in file_content: Label(root, text = 'Already Blocked' , font = 'arial 12 bold').place(x=200,y=200) pass else: host_file.write(ip_address + " " + website + '\n') Label(root, text = "Blocked", font = 'arial 12 bold').place(x=230,y =200)
5. Create a block button
block = Button(root, text = 'Block',font = 'arial 12 bold',pady = 5,command = Blocker ,width = 6, bg = 'royal blue1', activebackground = 'sky blue') block.place(x = 230, y = 150) root.mainloop()
When we click on the block button it will invoke the Blocker function.
Button()– used to display button on our window
command– called when we click the button.
