Binary Protection: Insufficient Code Obfuscation

Post by Gurgen » Wed Jul 12, 2017 6:31 pm

Hi Livecoders,

Is it possible to do Livecode Android app code obfuscation? I know Google has included one of the most popular of these tools, ProGuard, as part of the Android SDK. Is there any way to enable it?

Thanks,
Gurgen

@Gurgen: Only a small part of the engine is written in Java on Android - the majority is native code - so the amount of Java which could be protected is very small (also we are open-source, so the code is freely available online). Is there a specific reason why you would need to obfuscate the engine Java code?

If you buy the commercial version, user can't see your code. You have encrypt with password option on your stacks.
