If you are using a version of d3heatmap older than 0.4.0, please upgrade now! Previous versions put row and column names in the incorrect order!

D3 Heatmap for R

This is an R package that implements a heatmap htmlwidget. It has the following features:

  • Highlight rows/columns by clicking axis labels
  • Click and drag over colormap to zoom in (click on colormap to zoom out)
  • Optional clustering and dendrograms, courtesy of base::heatmap




To install:

if (!require("devtools")) install.packages("devtools")


Like any htmlwidget, you can visualize a d3 heatmap directly from the R console:

d3heatmap(mtcars, scale = "column", colors = "Spectral")

You can also include them in R Markdown chunks, or use them in Shiny applications with the d3heatmapOutput and renderD3heatmap functions.

See ?d3heatmap for options.
