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\ChartJSController;
Route::get('chart', [ChartJSController::class, 'index']);

Step 3: Create Controller

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


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\View\View;
use App\Models\User;
use DB;
class ChartJSController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return View
    public function index(): View
        $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');
        $labels = $users->keys();
        $data = $users->values();
        return view('chart', compact('labels', 'data'));
