Is there a way to distribute the meteor app by binary?

Sometimes, we don’t want to distribute the app with the source code in order to protect the intellectual property.
Is there a way to protect the source code?

Google for the same question but replace “Meteor” with “node” or “nodejs”. Meteor, at the end of the day, is just a plain nodejs app with a bunch of cool stuff mixed in, but nevertheless plain node. And there are tools for nodejs that do something like that, at least I think I remember doing some research on that and finding a few things. But not sure how practical and mature those tools are.
