Obfuscation is a surefire way to encrypt your source code and protect it from being stolen. CodeTangler Pro is a PHP obfuscator and encoder for solving this problem. CodeTangler will perform everything from the simplest methods such as stripping out whitespace to encoding your source code into a labyrinth of tangled yet runnable code. You have the option to choose what you wish to do with your source code and how you wish to obfuscate it.
CodeTangler Pro can scan your source code files for all comments, variables, functions, and classes as well as the statistics of their occupation within the total source code. Scanning source code is necessary in order to obfuscate it later. Once your project is scanned, you may modify any functions, classes, and variables scanned as well as their corresponding obfuscated replacement values.
The main solution in CodeTangler is to obfuscate and replace any PHP source code files in the project with newly made files containing the same program structure but containing different values for functions, variables, and classes. Since CodeTangler does not store the original source code files nor does it make any attempt to back up selected files for the project, IT IS ADVISABLE TO RETAIN AN ORIGINAL COPY OF YOUR PHP SOURCE CODE!
A new and interesting feature of CodeTangler Pro is the ability to encrypt your source code and offer a second level of security for your projects using one of our PHP source code encoders. In this product distribution, only two encoders are bundled with CodeTangler Pro: Inside-Out Encoder (more simple and not as secure but does offer another level of protection from pure source code files) and the Labyrinth PHP Encoder (more advanced and very tough encryption for your project files). All encoded source code files do not depend on any runtimes or installed modules to run on regular PHP web space.
