WordPress Obfuscator (PHP Obfuscator)


Are you a WordPress or PHP developer? Do you want to protect or obfuscate your code?
Look no further, WordPress Obfuscator allows you to protect your WordPress plugin code or any PHP code! It will protect your intellectual property from forgery and theft by obfuscating the php code.

What is PHP Obfuscation?

When you have a php project you want to distribute, as php is a script interpretor,
you distribute also all the sources of your software!

You may want, for any reason, that other people do not understand, modify, or adapt your software.

As your software must be understandable by the php runtime, but needs to be very difficult
to understand by human people, php obfuscation is a very good way to achieve this goal.

After testing this plugin - I can't believe this - it works... This plugin is pure magic... When I first saw the resulted file, my reaction was that WP was going to throw a million warnings and of course the white screen of death. But unbelievably, the "obfuscated" code works like a charm... I still can't believe it... Thanks a million, you are now forcing me to check all your other plugins... there goes my day!
