    hi

    Obfuscation on which level?. Because it is cleitside althou you can scramble the sourcecode with tools its also very easy for a developer to get it back to the original unscrambled code.

    I am searching for an obfuscation tool similar to XenoCode - you know, meaningless variable names, whitespace cleared, so on... I know that there's no perfect protection, but still, I want to protect the JS I write as well as I can.

    Hi

    you can try packer http://dean.edwards.name/packer/

    there are a few libraries I know off that allready work with this. Just remember that you need to end properly with a ; after functions variables etc in order for the script to work

    Thanks, very useful.

    What are your using for server-side obfuscation? I am experimenting with several tools at the moment and would really appreciate the feedback of other devs.

    Anyone willing to share experiences?
