Can a WebWorks app get secured, obfuscated or something to prevent access to code?

Hi

 

Can a WebWorks standalone app get secured, obfuscated or something to prevent unwanted access to underlying code.

 

tnx

Hi Heiko,

 

You can use the tradional ways of obfuscating/minifying your JavaScript code to help protect your application's assets.  Similar steps would be made for the same tasks on a traditional web site.

Thanx

 

will need to read up on it - come from a C++ background.

 

Looking forward to your Native SDK/API release Smiley Happy

What about something closer to traditional apps protection? If someone just copy-pastes the whole code, regardless of the obfuscation, and can use it locally, than he could easily repackage it and offer it as his own product on a handful of HTML5 supporting marketplaces, without even needing to touch any of the code.
