Re: Encrypt ruby source code

Hasn’t this been discussed somewhere else?

The issue is exactly the same for web applications written in ASP or
PHP. How have people protected those millions(?) of web applications in
the past years? Do we really need that protection?

Or maybe I don’t understand the issue, because every application I ever
did is so mediocre that I never thought of protecting my valuable
assets…

Kind regards,
torben

Generally, you don’t distribute a web application to a desktop. So,
unless someone breaks into your server, or your server sends the
application source to the browser because it is set up improperly (well,
I suppose you could have done it on purpose, in which case it would be
proper), people can’t get at your source.

As I see it, the issue is exactly the opposite for web applications.
