I have a jsxbin script. I want to edit the script, so i need to decompile the script to jsx. How can it possible.
Thanks in Advance,
The whole idea behind jsxbin, is to protect it from being viewed and edited...
There is NO way to decompile jsxbin.
You obviously didn't write it yourself then.
Ask the one you got the script from.
An answer like this really isn't helpful. I happen to be in the same boat as the person who initially asked the question. I realize this is a very old thread, but in my case. The person who wrote the code no longer works for the company and I need to decompile and edit. There are situations where this is necessary and one cannot go back to the person who wrote the script initially.
It may not be the right answer to you but this is the only answer. Technically speaking everything can be reverse engineered with varying degree of success. However, this is not a forum to discuss such things and to add to it the major portion of people responding to this thread are themselves InDesign scripters, and jsxbin format is a protection for our creations. We are not going to actively help in sabotaging a thing that is designed to protect us.
Even on Github if you do find a project, the people doing that would be someone from among us, so no sympathies needed. However, you are not heeding to sound advice. Even if you get to the point of getting it decompiled, the code that you would mostly likely get would not be in a state that would be easy to make edits to. If your team is shying away from writing it when you know your needs then goodluck managing a blob of code if you reach that state.
I know you wrote this a long time ago, but I'm in the same boat as you.
Hi @anitam1405587 ,
the answer is still the same.
Hand the job over to someone who can write a new script from scratch.
This time not saved as *.jsxbin file, but in plain, readable code.

There's a lesson for you (and anyone in the same boat): when you commission a script, while the script is being developed you work with compiled scripts. After the final payment you should get the source code. You should arrange this before work starts.
To be clear, I am only a worker bee within a company who has been given a task. The person who developed the code was also a long-term full-time employee who moved on. Now I'm stuck trying to problem solve after his departure.
I find it hard to believe others haven't found themselves in a similar situation.
Regardless, I managed to find the source files...FINALLY.
