Encoding/Compiling Ruby Code?


#1

Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know of a way to compile/encode/obfuscate a Rails app?
Similar to the Zend Encoder? You know, some way to distribute your
application without distributing the source code…

Nope. Ruby’s interpreter doesn’t have a convenient intermediate
bytecode, so it can’t be done at the moment. The best bet (for now) is
hosting it yourself, or relying on a good contract and copyright law.
