Clickheat on RoR

Port -- "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you
think it means."

Can you rewrite an existing PHP application in Ruby to run on the
Rails platform? Sure. Go for it. Looks interesting.

But dumping a "directory" of PHP code into an RoR app isn't going
to do, well, anything useful :slight_smile:


/* hat tip to 'The Princess Bride' */

Sorry. Maybe integrate will do? Do you have any suggestions for a person
whose english is not his native tongue?

I perhaps wrongfully assumed that basic CS terms like "port" -- and
FWIW I don't have a CS degree -- would be pretty universal. Sorry.

Thanks for the info! Now I know what to say to my boss :smiley:

Maybe you can talk him into sponsoring the port/development of a
clickheat-functional-equivalent gem/plugin. That would be cool :slight_smile:

Let us know how it goes!

I set up this, or something similar a while ago.

I just put it on its own server, rather than on a particular website, &
configured it accept data from a number of sites. As I did not want a
php site & a rails site on the same server - just to keep my
environments seperate.

Google analytics & provide similar functionality. Google is
free & there is a free version of crazyegg that might be all you need.

It works really well on flat html sites - not quite so well on Ajax
heavy sites.

I found the information really helpful & it seemed to convey more info
than just raw numbers - so its definately worthwhile.
