This tutorial demonstrates how to create charts in Laravel 11 with Highcharts JS. We will gradually look into the entire process of working with laravel 11 and highcharts with examples.

Highcharts JS is a popular JavaScript charting library that is designed to create interactive and visually stunning charts and graphs for web pages. It provides a wide range of chart and graph types such as line chart, area chart, bar chart, column chart, pie chart, scatter chart, and more, which can be customized through a vast number of configuration options.

In this example, we will create some dummy user records and then display a line 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 How to Create Chart using Highcharts in Laravel 11?

  • Step 1: Install Laravel 11
  • Step 2: Create Route
  • Step 3: Create Controller

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:

Step 2: 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\HighchartController;
Route::get('chart', [HighchartController::class, 'index']);

Step 3: Create Controller

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


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
use DB;
use Illuminate\View\View;
class HighchartController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function index(): View
        $users = User::select(DB::raw("COUNT(*) as count"))
                    ->whereYear('created_at', date('Y'))
        return view('chart', compact('users'));

Step 4: Create Blade File

here, we need to create blade file and in this blade file we use highchart js and use their code.

                        align: 'center',
