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.
