Hello to everyone,
In my project, I need to obfuscate my scripts. While I was searching I found some useful tools except YUI Compressor that does this but I just want to learn how can I also hide my script code from Firebug? Are there anyone who knows a way to do this?
Thanks in advance..

It can't be done, and anyone claiming they can is selling you snake oil.
Also, it doesn't need to be done. Obfuscation is usually needed for two reasons: (1) security, and (2) management fear of stolen code.
- Security is a bad reason because this points to mistakes made in the security architecture of the application, so the developer is at fault for thinking they need the obfuscator in the first place.

I need this in order to prevent code stealing. As I know 'minify' just compresses the code; but it is still readable without using anything. I need to 'pack'(compress + obfuscate) my scripts. I do all security stuff at server-side..

Why do you think people would steal your code?

Actually this is not just I want. This is also what the people that is going to use it wants.. I think there are many people who wants this, otherwise there wouldn't any obfuscating tools..

If you don't want your code to be stolen, don't send it to the user's browser. Period. Obfuscating tools might make it more difficult for someone to figure out/steal your code, but that will only slow down a determined attacker - not stop them.
