ClickHeat, the tool that warms your visitors' mouse activities

clickheatClickHeat is a visual heatmap of clicks on a HTML page, showing hot and cold click zones. ClickHeat is an OpenSource software, released under GPL licence, and free of charge. You may know it as LabsMedia's ClickHeat, that's the very same software, as we developed it (look for the credits in the files!). So after 3 years of sleep, we decided to launch it again, through the powerful Github community.

Download and installation

Simply clone it with git: git clone
Or you can install it from ZIP archive: go to the Github page: «Clone or download» then «Download ZIP», and finally follow the installation process.
Read the Frequently asked questions if you have any issue, then post on the Github issue tracker if you don't find any clue.


- on the browser's client: Javascript (tested on Firefox 2.0, Internet Explorer 6 and 7, Konqueror...)
- on the server: either Linux or Windows (since ClickHeat 1.3 release), Apache or Lighttpd (other may work fine), PHP, the graphic library GD2 (PNG support needed).


- Low logging activity: a very few function calls to log a click, no server load rise should be noticed (have a look at Performance & optimization)
- A keyword is used to define the page upon Javascript code load, allowing you to group same pages.
- Screen sizes and browsers are logged, making possible the tracking of liquid CSS layouts (100% used width).
