Re: Soft Permutation Creating JavaScript for Server Side Script Selection

Are you aware that this approach will fail as soon as you have deferred binding properties (your own or through a 3rd party lib) that can only be filled with a value through JS execution inside the browser?

A basic example of a custom linker:
