ShortPoint is a JavaScript product, everything happens in the browser with no server-side programs.


When you activate and install ShortPoint, it injects JavaScript and CSS files to the page header dynamically using Microsoft best practices. Our files are minified, optimized, obfuscated and compressed to the highest level.


ShortPoint depends on a number of 3rd party open source libraries, which are listed in this article. We are using the latest public version of these files which was available at the time of the latest ShortPoint release unless stated otherwise.
