Did you experience a shock after a competitor copied and reused your code?
Do you wonder how to protect your JavaScript code from being copied by competitors?

How to find the Best Solution to Secure your JavaScript Code from being Copied by Competitors?

I had searched too much to find out the best solution that could significantly make your code extremely difficult to be read as well useless if copied. Let me show you how this worked.

jquery original file without minification and re-formatting

This image shows a snapshot for how an original JavaScript project file may look like after development, it’s normally full of line breaks, white-spaces, tab indentations, comments, repeated strings, jsons, variables and extended functions.

In order to convert your code to be unreadable, we decided to perform a Conversion test on a comprehensive JavaScript project as well popular and used by most developers. Therefore, we carried out the test on the jQuery library file which constitutes the best simplified version of JavaScript (as shown above without being minified).

Steps followed to Perform a Conversion Test on original and upgraded JavaScript files

The Conversion test is to apply a series of minification and reformatting processes as follow. Where, the original JavaScript file is called as upgraded after applying minification and re-formatting. In minification, the line breaks, white-spaces, tab indentations and comments are removed. As for re-formatting, the jsons and functions are converted to better loading forms, in addition strings are encoded and moved.

Results and Conclusion of the Conversion Test on a JavaScript file

The previous image shows how your code will finally look like after completing the Conversion Test. As shown, it may take weeks for any developer to reverse the code back in order to make it readable for re-use; and so it will be better for any competitor to ask or pay you to get the original file instead. Moreover, InfoApper created the above Conversion tool with various super options that allow to:
