Step 1: Install Laravel

first of all we need to get fresh Laravel application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blogFirebase

Step 2: Create Migration and Model

we require to create new table "visitors" that way we will get data from this table, you can use your own table but this is for example. we have to create migration for visitors table using Laravel 5 php artisan command, so first fire bellow command:

php artisan make:migration create_visitor_table

After this command you will find one file in following path database/migrations and you have to put bellow code in your migration file for create visitors table.


use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateVisitorTable extends Migration



* Run the migrations.


* @return void


public function up()


Schema::create('visitors', function (Blueprint $table) {








* Reverse the migrations.


* @return void


public function down()





Ok, now you can add few records like as bellow:

Let's create model using bellow command:

php artisan make:model Visitor



namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Visitor extends Model


use HasFactory;


Step 3: Add Route

In this is step we need to add route for generate view. so open your route file and add following route.



use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\HomeController;



| Web Routes



| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!



Route::get('google-line-chart', [HomeController::class, 'googleLineChart']);

Step 4: Create Controller

If you haven't HomeController then we should create new controller as HomeController in this path app/Http/Controllers/HomeController.php. Make sure you should have visitor table with some data. this controller will manage data and chart data and view file, so put bellow content in controller file:



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\Visitor;

use DB;

class HomeController extends Controller



* Create a new controller instance.


* @return void


public function googleLineChart()


$visitor = Visitor::select(

DB::raw("year(created_at) as year"),

DB::raw("SUM(click) as total_click"),

DB::raw("SUM(viewer) as total_viewer"))




$result[] = ['Year','Click','Viewer'];

foreach ($visitor as $key => $value) {

$result[++$key] = [$value->year, (int)$value->total_click, (int)$value->total_viewer];


return view('google-line-chart')




Step 5: Create View File

In last step, we have to create view file "google-line-chart.blade.php" for generate view chart, so create google-line-chart file and put bellow code:




<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

var visitor = <?php echo $visitor; ?>;


google.charts.load('current', {'packages':['corechart']});


function drawChart() {

var data = google.visualization.arrayToDataTable(visitor);

var options = {

title: 'Site Visitor Line Chart',

curveType: 'function',

legend: { position: 'bottom' }


var chart = new google.visualization.LineChart(document.getElementById('linechart'));

chart.draw(data, options);





<h1>Laravel Google Chart Example -</h1>

<div id="linechart" style="width: 900px; height: 500px"></div>



Now you can run and check.
