More and more software products are including a feature that allows using the Lua programming language to author addons that add additional features to the base software product.
One of the most notable of those products is World of Warcraft.
World of Warcraft players can write Lua addons to modify and enhance the user interface in many useful ways.
As a player of World of Warcraft for three years, I've enjoyed using many of these addons and even started to create my own.
The addon I developed seemed useful enough that I thought other players may be willing to purchase the addon for real money, even though the large majority of World of Warcraft addons at the time were free.
Long story short, the company that created World of Warcraft turned on their addon developers and effectively outlawed addon developers from making a living from addon development.
In the process of trying to commercialize my lua addon, I wrote a code obfuscator for lua. That obfuscator doesn't have much use to me at the moment, so I put a web front end on it and I'm publishing it to see if other people can get any meaningful use out of it.
This version (v188.8.131.52) is free to use with limitations on how many text characters can be processed per day and per IP Address.

There is a feedback page as part of the lua obfuscator application that allows you to submit feedback of any kind. Please let me know what you think!
