How to integrate highcharts into Your Laravel application

A popular PHP framework for creating web applications is Laravel. A JavaScript charting framework called Highcharts can be used to display data online.


Step 1 - Install Laravel In first step you need toinstall Laravel on your computer before you can proceed.


Step 2 - Install Highcharts In this step you need to install Highcharts. to install this you need to downloading the library from the Highcharts official website ( ) and then add the JavaScript and CSS files in your Laravel project.

You can also use a package manager like npm to install Highcharts:

npm install highcharts --save


Step 3 - Set up your view In your Laravel application, create a new view where you want to display your Highcharts chart.

For example, you can create a new file like chart.blade.php (you can take any file name) in your resources/views directory.

In this file, you'll need to include the Highcharts JavaScript and CSS files. Add the following code to the top of your view file to do this:

    <script src=""></script>
    <script src=""></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">


Step 4 - Set up your controller The data that you wish to display in your chart must then be retrieved by setting up your controller. For example, you can create a new controller method called getChartData that retrieves some data from your database.

You must format your data for this approach so that Highcharts can read it. To do this, create an array of objects, each of which represents a different point on your chart.

For example:

public function getChartData()
    $data = [        ['name' => 'Apples', 'y' => 20],
        ['name' => 'Bananas', 'y' => 10],
        ['name' => 'Oranges', 'y' => 30],
        ['name' => 'Pears', 'y' => 15],
        ['name' => 'Grapes', 'y' => 25],

    return response()->json($data);


Step 5 - Render your chart Finally, you'll need to render your chart in your view file. To accomplish this, add the following JavaScript code to the bottom of view file:

    $(function () {
        $.getJSON('/chart-data', function (data) {

            // Create the chart
            Highcharts.chart('chart-container', {
                chart: {
                    type: 'pie'
                title: {
                    text: 'Fruit Consumption'
                series: [{
                    name: 'Fruit',
                    data: data

This code retrieves the data from your getChartData method using an AJAX call, and then uses that data to create a Highcharts chart in a container element with the ID chart-container.

You should be able to include Highcharts into your Laravel application and display data in a chart after following these steps.
