JavaScript: Obfuscate

General - commercial product
HackerNews discusses pros, cons, and impossibilities of JS obfuscation


It’s very hard to reliably obfuscate Java Script because the language is dynamic enough that you might refer to object fields or function names through dynamically-computed strings. Any attempt to obfuscate these runs up against the halting problem. So you have to rely on conservative approximations...



NOTE: I’ve not used an objfuscator in practice; just not worth the bother for me at this point. Who knows what the future might hold, however....
