What is a JSC file?
Primarily, compiling a JS file to a JSC file is meant to prevent app users and other developers from examining, and potentially stealing or altering, the app's source code. For example, a developer creating a browser-based video game using Node.js may choose to compile the game's JS files to JSC files, to prevent other developers from copying their game's logic.
How to open a JSC file
You can use bytenode (multiplatform) to run the compiled script a JSC file contains. To do so, enter the following command:
bytenode --run YourFile.jsc
For complete instructions on how to create and use JSC files with bytenode, refer to bytenode's documentation (linked below).
