Ask HN: License Manager in Ruby/RoR
2 points by jacktang 2676 days ago | hide | past | web | 1 comment | favorite
Hi Rubists,

I am going to ship one RoR application, and come up the question: how can protect the application? In Java there are some license managers, so how about Ruby? or what's your solution?

Regards /Jack

you'd need a code obfuscator that can turn it into an executable, otherwise the source code could just be modified to disable the licensing checks.

http://www.rubyencoder.com/ is one such product, but i've never used it.
