[Mapbender-dev] Packer (code conventions)

Another thing that we should keep in mind is, that a lot of different 
js-scripts are loaded into map.php on startup, and conflicts could arise 
if each script would be compressed individually (as Dean Edwards' packer 
shortens variable names as well).

I did a little research, and found this list of JS obfuscators and 
packers (there are quite a lot)


Especially this one


seems to be interesting, as it is free software and can handle the 
compression of multiple (dependent) js files.

So I guess we should consider other packers as well. If anyone has 
experience with any of these or other tools, please share your knowledge.
