Full installation on a Linux VM consists of:

curl -sSL | bash

The community edits get downloaded on their own - I don't think I ever looked at the frequency at which those edits are made. I do know it gets updates from multiple lists. Updating the software itself to the latest version is also a one-liner:

pihole -up

If you want to add to your own blacklist/whitelist, Pi-hole has an HTML dashboard you can make your edits through with a browser. Though I've never looked into it, I have to imagine there's a way to import from a plain-text hosts file.
