Laravel Charting Package
Published on by Eric L. Barnes
Creating charts is often a pain because of how you have to convert your data into what the charting library supports and each library is different.
To help make this easier Erik Campobadal created a new Laravel chart package to create interactive charts. It supports a dozen of the most popular charting libraries from standard line and bar charts, to real time charting libraries.
To create your own chart it uses a familiar fluent syntax
Charts::multi('line', 'highcharts')->setColors(['#ff0000', '#00ff00', '#0000ff'])->setLabels(['One', 'Two', 'Three'])->setDataset('Test 1', [1,2,3])->setDataset('Test 2', [0,6,0])->setDataset('Test 3', [3,4,1]);
Plus you can also create charts directly from your database:
$chart = Charts::database(User::all(), 'bar', 'highcharts')->setElementLabel("Total")->setDimensions(1000, 500)->setResponsive(false)->groupByDay();
Real time charts can be setup like this:
$chart = Charts::realtime(url('/path/to/json'), 1000, 'area', 'highcharts')->setResponsive(false)->setHeight(300)->setWidth(0)->setTitle("Permissions Chart")->setMaxValues(10);

This charting library supports a ton of options and seems to be really powerful for all your charting needs.
