I need a class to make the PHP production code harder readable

This request is clear and relevant.

The class should process the PHP 5.4+ source:

  1. remove whitespaces and comments
  2. scramble (not encode)
  3. handle both pure PHP (incl. nowdoc) and phtml (PHP tags inside HTML) files

    remove whitespaces and comments - OK scramble (not encode) - Useless and bad practise

    compress. minify, obfuscate are three diffrent tasks and should be handled apart of each other. E.g. you minify the code and compress the file.

    Obfuscate, mh, just wasted time in any case, imho, you should consider to choose a real encryption method instead or just keep the code open.

      What do you mean by scramble (not encode)? Do you mean obfuscate variable names and not use encodings like base64 to make code unreadable?

        I meant obfuscation mainly, i.e. NOT the encoding requiring any loader (PHP extension) installation.

        There are several classes that obfuscate the code including removing comments, white space and changing variable names.

        Did you find any limitation in those that exist or you are just not sure which one would be best for your requirements?

        I found several classes needing adaptation. For example 1) that would satisfy initially: http://www.phpclasses.org/package/7156-PHP-Reduce-the-size-of-PHP-source-files.html Unfortunately, the downloaded version didn't work. I posted the question to the forum but no answer yet. 2) that seems interesting (though in php 4): http://www.phpclasses.org/package/3241-PHP-Obfuscate-PHP-code-using-filters-and-compression.html I'll learn more. Thanks for reply.

        Would you like a solution that also renames variables? Because there are a few may work that way and also remove white space and comments.

    This package minifies the PHP source files on the project level. It can also minify the JavaScript, HTML, CSS, JSON and XML sources. The PackApp extended version is available to obfuscate the PHP source code.

    This class may be suitable for your purposes. It can remove white spaces and comments and rename variables so they do not become recognizable.

      Thanks for recommendation. I'll try it.

      My choice is so far: Best PHP Obfuscator from Pipsomania Co.

      The only issue encountered: anonymous functions are not obfuscated correctly. Unfortunately, can't contact the authors.
