Laravel Charting Package

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);
