Web App Source Code Protection Community Group
The goal of this community group is to explore solutions for protecting web app source codes.
It is well-known that web page source codes are visible to the public due to the openness of the Internet and the W3C standards.
With the advent of HTML5, the web apps become popular, especially the mobile web apps. Web apps can be classified as either Hosted App or Packaged App. The source code of Packaged Apps (such as the apps in Firefox OS or Tizen OS) are installed and running locally. Users can easily view the source code. Similarly front end source code of Hosted App can also be easily seen by anyone.
In this case, the publicity of source codes becomes a problem. Because web developers never hope their web apps are easily copied by others.
