By Hardik Savani July 5, 2024 Category : Laravel

In this tutorial, I will show you how to create dynamic apexcharts using larapex charts package in laravel 11 application.

ApexCharts is a JavaScript library used for creating beautiful and interactive charts on websites. It makes it easy to visualize data through various chart types like bar, line, pie, and more. Users can customize the appearance, animate the charts, and interact with them to explore data. ApexCharts is popular because it's easy to use and helps make data look appealing and understandable.

In this example, we will create some dummy user records and then display a pie chart with all months of the current year. So let's follow the below steps and add a chart to your Laravel 11 apps.

Step for Laravel 11 Apexcharts Example

  • Step 1: Install Laravel 11
  • Step 2: Install arielmejiadev/larapex-charts
  • Step 3: Create Route
  • Step 4: Create Chart Class
  • Step 5: Create Controller
  • Step 6: Create Blade File
  • Step 7: Create Dummy Records
  • Run Laravel App

Step 1: Install Laravel 11

This step is not required; however, if you have not created the Laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Install arielmejiadev/larapex-charts

we need to install arielmejiadev/larapex-charts composer package using the following command:

composer require arielmejiadev/larapex-charts

Now, we will publish configuration file using the following command:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=larapex-charts-config

Step 3: Create Route

First of all, we will create a simple route for creating a simple line chart. So let's add simple routes as below:


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\ApexchartsController;
Route::get('charts', [ApexchartsController::class, 'index']);

Step 4: Create Chart Class

In this step, we will create "Charts" folder in app folder. then we will create MonthlyUsersChart.php file with the following code:



namespace App\Charts;

use ArielMejiaDev\LarapexCharts\LarapexChart;
use App\Models\User;
use DB;

class MonthlyUsersChart
    protected $chart;

     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function __construct(LarapexChart $chart)
        $this->chart = $chart;
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function build()
        $users = User::select(DB::raw("COUNT(*) as count"), DB::raw("MONTHNAME(created_at) as month_name"))
                    ->whereYear('created_at', date('Y'))
                    ->pluck('count', 'month_name');

        return $this->chart->pieChart()
            ->setTitle('New Users - '.date('Y'))

Step 5: Create Controller

Here, we will create a new controller named ApexchartsController. So let's add the code below to that controller file.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Charts\MonthlyUsersChart;

class ApexchartsController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function index(MonthlyUsersChart $chart)
        return view('apexcharts', ['chart' => $chart->build()]);

Step 6: Create Blade File

here, we need to create blade file and in this blade file we use $chart variable and use their code.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Laravel 11 Apexcharts Chart Example -</title>
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <div class="container">
        <div class="card mt-5">
            <h3 class="card-header p-3">Laravel 11 Apexcharts Chart Example -</h3>
            <div class="card-body"> 
                {!! $chart->container() !!}
<script src="{{ $chart->cdn() }}"></script>

{{ $chart->script() }}

Step 7: Create Dummy Records:

Here, we need to add some dummy records on users table as monthly wise.

you can create dummy records using laravel tinker command as bellow:

php artisan tinker


You need to create users on each month with created date as like bellow screen shot:
