Is there a way to hide the JS pages in a web app when it is written in something like Notepad++? I assume the only way would to use a proper coding environment such as visual studio and properly compiled into a web app?
Actually NO, JS is a non-compiled language so the best opportunity you have is to minify/ugilfy your JS code using a plugin.
So I would have to use C++ or some other language....what would accomplish this?
EDIT: Nice link about obfuscating code & some of the pros/cons about it
Just understand that obfuscating code is by no means securing the code. It makes the code less human readable but and JS programmer worth their weight in salt can still interpret that code and use it.
I'm aware of that and precisely why I added the link.
I figured you were aware of that. That comment was more for Jay.
