Add Speedtest to Pihole WebUI

So this project is just another fun project integrating speed test to PiHole Web UI.

Note: It’s just a quick solution, nowhere near perfect. If you made it better please let me know here  Discord ( prefered ) or  Google+ Community 

It will be using on background for testing. More frequent the speed tests more data will used.

What does this mod have in extra ?

  1. Speedtest results of 1 /2 4/ 7/30  days as graph.
  2. Custom speed test server selection.
  3. Detailed speedtest results page.
  4. Ability to schedule speedtest interval.
