Details

Personalisation options include light/dark mode, background images & more...

FAQ

Why are some websites not blocked immediately?

Due to browser caching, the website may continue to load unblocked for up to ~10 minutes after enabling website blocking. Close all browser windows and re-open if the issue persists.

Why do I get an "Insecure Connection" error in Firefox and other web browsers?

We're effectively interrupting the connection and replacing the website with the blocked page. Your web browser is correct to warn you, since the resulting webpage is abnormal.

App FAQ & Docs

The website blocking doesn't work immediately

Due to browser caching, the website may continue to load unblocked for up to ~10 minutes after enabling website blocking. Close all browser windows and re-open if the issue persists.

I want to import a Screen Saver, but it's .exe

Rename the file, and change the '.exe' to '.scr'. Click to continue if a warning prompt shows.
Then go to Settings > Open Settings Window > Screen Saver, and click the 📂 icon. Find the screensaver file ending in .scr and select.
You should now be able to select the Screen Saver in the drop down list to the left of the 📂 icon.

If I discover a bug, what do I do?

If the app displayed an error, go to Settings > Open Settings Window > Debug Logs, and click the 📨 icon. This sends the debug logs to our development team to look into the issue as soon as possible. If the app didn't display an error, reach out to use via our Discord Bot's support server, and we'll help you from there.

I have a feature suggestion

Feel free to reach out to us via our Discord Bot's support server, and with any feedback you have. User feedback is valuable to us and helps us improve the experience for everyone.

About

Revisioner is programmed in Python in conjunction with Qt (PyQt). Most windows utilise Qt features, although the loading splash screen is using tkinter. The app is exported using PyInstaller.
