PackApp - Application Packer

A complete solution to pack your application project files into the delivery package. The source code is minified and obfuscated, impeding unauthorized use.

Prepare your application for the production, greatly reducing the risk of piracy

The target audience: ISVs, freelancers, developers, resellers, all who need a lightweight utility to turn the project into the delivery package. The solution is oriented to the PHP applications, but can be used for your front-end projects too.

There are many minifiers, obfuscators, encoders around. Some commercial encoders are very good, but rather expensive and may require system extensions. The others are limited with a single source type only. The Packer is a simple integrated solution.

How it works

PackApp.php packs the project files: minifies the source (html, css, js, json, php, xml), obfuscates (php) or encodes (js) the code and compresses the resulting files. The php templates are processed for the html, js, css, php code.

The source can be either a single file or a folder which may have sub-folders. The destination is a packed file or a folder with the packed files. The ZIP archives are handled also: folder-to-zip, zip-to-folder, zip-to-zip.

The Packer passes the source to respective minify add-on depending on the file type. The css and js detected inside the html are minified too. The html, css, js are looked for the embedded php to minify. You can create the user add-ons for more file types.

The js and php code can be obfuscated to inhibit its unauthorized use. You must follow certain naming rules for the PHP identifiers to avoid the renaming conflicts. The php obfuscation is supplied by Standard edition.

There are several options to control the processing. Use them for specific cases and rely on defaults generally. Launch the Packer via the GUI or instantiate and call directly. Various statistics is returned about the processing results. You can display and/or save this data.



    The basic kinds of the code are supported: php, html, css, js, json, xml. The embedded code (js in html, php in js , ...) is detected.

    You can handle different sources and destinations: files, folders, archives.


    The obfuscated source is hard to read that protects against unauthorized use. The reverse engineering becomes too expensive.

    The copying of your application's source code on the client's server is inhibited.


    Various options allow to customize the minifying and obfuscation process: exclude the files, include the identifiers etc.

    You can extend the list of the source types to be minified by creating your own add-ons.



    The source files of relevant file type are minified by removing the comments, whitespaces and line breaks.

    The source files of relevant file type (js, php) are obfuscated by replacing the identifier names with any occasional.

    A file or a folder can be packed and the source and/or destination folder can be archived.

    The processing parameters allow to control the packing according to the specifics of the source.

    Various statistics is collected about the packing result. This data can be displayed and/or saved.

  • Very simple and effective tool. Used it to encrypt some shop modules and similar stuff. Good Job!

  • Very useful app! It takes a little work to get some PHP scripts working but that is normal when using products like this. If it had the ability to directly download generated zip files would give this baby 5 stars. UPDATE: Gets a full 5 stars with the new download feature! Overall would recommend without hesitation.
