Supported libraries

Laravel Charts provides diferent front-end libraries to create the chart with.

You'll need to import the one you want to make use of.

WARNING

Only the basic charts where tested during the development of the library. Meaning that line, area, bar, pie will probably work fine on all of them. 90% of the time is what you'll need 😄

Chartjs (> 2.7.1)

Chartjs is often one of the most chosen JS library. It's good but it lacks on a lot of places in my opinion.
