Description

What is UglifyJS?

This package implements a general-purpose JavaScript parser/compressor/beautifier toolkit. It is developed on NodeJS, but it should work on any JavaScript platform supporting the CommonJS module system (and if your platform of choice doesn’t support CommonJS, you can easily implement it, or discard the exports.* lines from UglifyJS sources).

What is JS Beautifier?

This little beautifier will reformat and reindent bookmarklets, ugly JavaScript, unpack scripts packed by Dean Edward’s popular packer, as well as deobfuscate scripts processed by javascriptobfuscator.com.

What is decaffeinate?

Convert your CoffeeScript source to modern JavaScript with decaffeinate. For real-world use cases, spend some time understanding the different options and nuances of the decaffeinate tool.
