NX Enhanced

A userscript that adds "quality-of-life" features to NextDNS website to make the experience of managing lists, domains, etc. more practical.

Note: This userscript is discontinued. It still works fine in Chrome, and partially in Firefox (see the "How to use it" note below). If you want to continue receiving updates, please use the browser extension instead (instructions here).

Features

  • Allow/Deny buttons in the logs that make it possible to add an exception or block a domain without needing to copy, switch pages, and paste.

    You can either add the respective domain or the whole root domain, or even edit the domain if you want.

How to use it

To use this userscript, just install in your browser Tampermonkey, Violentmonkey or Greasemonkey extension, if you hadn't yet. Having it installed, then just go to the following link: https://greasyfork.org/scripts/408934-nx-enhanced/code/NX%20Enhanced.user.js

A window will pop asking if you want to install the script, just confirm it, and it's done!

If you use uMatrix, you have to allow media to api.nextdns.io to use the allow/deny buttons, Add all TLDs and export/import features.

Note: Although almost all features should work fine with it, Greasemonkey is not supported. NX Enhanced userscript was tested in Firefox and Chrome, in Tampermonkey, Greasemonkey and Violentmonkey. It used to work in Firefox, but it's working partially now. You have to use the Firefox extension instead. If you really have to use this userscript in Firefox, you have to disable the security.csp.enable setting in about:config (not recommended for security reasons). In Chrome, to this date, it still works fine. To this date, it should work fine in pretty much any other browsers in which you can install any of these three script-managers, although I didn't tested them.
