In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to integrate Google Charts dynamically into a Laravel 11 application. Google Charts is a powerful, simple-to-use library that allows you to visualize data on your web applications. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll be able to create a chart that dynamically fetches and displays data from a database.


Before we start, make sure you have the following:

  • PHP >= 8.1
  • Composer
  • Laravel 11 installed
  • Basic knowledge of Laravel and PHP

Setting Up Laravel

First, let’s set up a new Laravel project. Open your terminal and run:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel-google-charts

Navigate to the project directory:

cd laravel-google-charts

Creating a Database and Table

Next, let’s create a database and a table to store the data we want to visualize. Open your .env file and set up your database connection:


Now, create a migration file for our table:

php artisan make:migration create_sales_table

In the migration file (database/migrations/xxxx_xx_xx_xxxxxx_create_sales_table.php), add the following code:

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

return new class extends Migration {
    public function up(): void {
        Schema::create('sales', function (Blueprint $table) {

    public function down(): void {

Run the migration to create the table:

php artisan migrate

Now, let’s seed the database with some sample data. Create a seeder file:

php artisan make:seeder SalesTableSeeder

In the seeder file (database/seeders/SalesTableSeeder.php), add the following code:

use Illuminate\Database\Seeder;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\DB;
use Illuminate\Support\Str;

class SalesTableSeeder extends Seeder {
    public function run() {
            ['product_name' => 'Product A', 'quantity' => 100],
            ['product_name' => 'Product B', 'quantity' => 150],
            ['product_name' => 'Product C', 'quantity' => 200],

Run the seeder:

php artisan db:seed --class=SalesTableSeeder

Fetching Data from the Database

Now, let’s create a model for our sales table. Run the following command:

php artisan make:model Sale

Installing Google Charts Library

Since Google Charts is a JavaScript library, we don’t need to install it using Composer or NPM. We’ll directly include it in our view.

Creating a Controller

Let’s create a controller that will fetch data from the database and pass it to the view:

php artisan make:controller ChartController

In the ChartController.php file (app/Http/Controllers/ChartController.php), add the following code:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\Sale;

class ChartController extends Controller {
    public function index() {
        $sales = Sale::all();
        $salesData = [];

        foreach ($sales as $sale) {
            $salesData[] = [$sale->product_name, $sale->quantity];

        $salesData = json_encode($salesData);

        return view('chart', compact('salesData'));

Creating a Route

Next, we need to create a route to display our chart. Open the web.php file (routes/web.php) and add the following route:

use App\Http\Controllers\ChartController;

Route::get('/chart', [ChartController::class, 'index']);

Creating a View

Now, let’s create a view that will display our chart. Create a new file named chart.blade.php in the resources/views directory and add the following code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Laravel Google Charts</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        google.charts.load('current', {'packages':['corechart']});

        function drawChart() {
            var data = google.visualization.arrayToDataTable([
                ['Product Name', 'Quantity'],
                    echo $salesData;

            var options = {
                title: 'Product Sales',
                hAxis: {title: 'Product Name', titleTextStyle: {color: '#333'}},
                vAxis: {minValue: 0}

            var chart = new google.visualization.AreaChart(document.getElementById('chart_div'));
            chart.draw(data, options);
    <div id="chart_div" style="width: 100%; height: 500px;"></div>

Integrating Google Charts

The code above loads the Google Charts library and sets up a function to draw the chart using the data passed from the controller. The @php echo $salesData; @endphp line outputs the JSON-encoded sales data.


Congratulations! You’ve successfully integrated Google Charts into your Laravel 11 application. You can now visualize data dynamically fetched from your database. This is a powerful way to enhance the user experience and present data in a more meaningful way.

Feel free to customize the chart options and data to fit your specific needs. Happy coding!
