General - url's for web publishing

Post by locutus »

I figured I should make a sticky for URL posts and web resources so this is it. The first thing I'd like to list as a resource is a program called HTML Zip. It compresses html code into encrypted code to protect orignal web page code from being ripped off easily.

http://www.htmlzip.com

I have been using it off and on for many years and it works pretty good.

it wouldn't stop anyone mirroring your site and reading source locally would it? *unsure*

just curious

btw is there a crossbrowser compression plugin that doesn't hide the source? and which is GNU GPL or similar? that would be something for me :mrgreen:

one more question: does it make it all one big zip-file? if so it could cause the page to load slower (in effect smaller size would be negated by the network/packet process if it's all one big zip with all the pictures etc (and the pictures might not be compressed much anyway)

yes i know i shouldn't ask but rather experiment with it myself :) *lazy*

alls it does is compresses the code into crazy symbols but somehow it still renders ok. I am really not sure how it works, I know it leaves a copyright tag at the end that can easily be taken out. Here is a sample of encyrpted code from my own Tron index page (btw it also reduced the size of this example page from 11kb to 8 kb):

It's just some Javascript, so users with it turned off (and search engines) will just see a blank page. (And it's propably trivial to get the source anyway...)

Regarding crossbrowser compression, the best method would be to use gzip, which is supported by most modern browsers. You can use it for example with PHP's ob_gzhandler or Apache's mod_gzip extension.
