php artisan make:model Expense -m

Then open create_expenses_table.php and update the up() function, which is located inside database/migration directory:

 public function up() { Schema::create('expenses', function (Blueprint $table) { $table->id(); $table->string('description'); $table->decimal('amount'); $table->string('type'); $table->timestamps(); }); }

Now, open command prompt and execute the following command to create the table into your database:

php artisan migrate

Step 4 – Install Livewire Package

In this step, Execute the following command to install livewire package in laravel 8 app:

composer

require

 livewire/livewire

Step 5 – Install Livewire Charts Package

In this step, execute the following command to install livewire charts package:

composer require asantibanez/livewire-charts

Step 5: Build Livewire Component using Artisan

In this step, create the livewire components for creating a livewire charts component using the following command in laravel 8 app. So Open your cmd and execute the following command:

php artisan make:livewire LivewireCharts

This command will create the following components on the following path:

app/Http/Livewire/LivewireCharts.php
resources/views/livewire/livewire-charts.blade.php

Now, Navigate to app/Http/Livewire folder and open LivwireCharts.php file. Then add the following code into your LivwireCharts.php file:

<?php
namespace App\Http\Livewire;
use App\Models\Expense;
use Asantibanez\LivewireCharts\Models\AreaChartModel;
use Asantibanez\LivewireCharts\Models\ColumnChartModel;
use Asantibanez\LivewireCharts\Models\LineChartModel;
use Asantibanez\LivewireCharts\Models\PieChartModel;
use Livewire\Component;
class LivewireCharts extends Component
{
public $types = ['food', 'shopping', 'entertainment', 'travel', 'other'];
public $colors = [ 'food' => '#f6ad55', 'shopping' => '#fc8181', 'entertainment' => '#90cdf4', 'travel' => '#66DA26', 'other' => '#cbd5e0',
];
public $firstRun = true;
protected $listeners = [ 'onPointClick' => 'handleOnPointClick', 'onSliceClick' => 'handleOnSliceClick', 'onColumnClick' => 'handleOnColumnClick',
];
public function handleOnPointClick($point)
{
dd($point);
}
public function handleOnSliceClick($slice)
{
dd($slice);
}
public function handleOnColumnClick($column)
{
dd($column);
}
public function render()
{
$expenses = Expense::whereIn('type', $this->types)->get();
$columnChartModel = $expenses->groupBy('type')
->reduce(function (ColumnChartModel $columnChartModel, $data) {
$type = $data->first()->type;
$value = $data->sum('amount');
return $columnChartModel->addColumn($type, $value, $this->colors[$type]);
}, (new ColumnChartModel())
->setTitle('Expenses by Type')
->setAnimated($this->firstRun)
->withOnColumnClickEventName('onColumnClick')
);
$pieChartModel = $expenses->groupBy('type')
->reduce(function (PieChartModel $pieChartModel, $data) {
$type = $data->first()->type;
$value = $data->sum('amount');
return $pieChartModel->addSlice($type, $value, $this->colors[$type]);
}, (new PieChartModel())
->setTitle('Expenses by Type')
->setAnimated($this->firstRun)
->withOnSliceClickEvent('onSliceClick')
);
$lineChartModel = $expenses
->reduce(function (LineChartModel $lineChartModel, $data) use ($expenses) {
$index = $expenses->search($data);
$amountSum = $expenses->take($index + 1)->sum('amount');
if ($index == 6) {
$lineChartModel->addMarker(7, $amountSum);
}
if ($index == 11) {
$lineChartModel->addMarker(12, $amountSum);
}
return $lineChartModel->addPoint($index, $amountSum, ['id' => $data->id]);
}, (new LineChartModel())
->setTitle('Expenses Evolution')
->setAnimated($this->firstRun)
->withOnPointClickEvent('onPointClick')
);
$areaChartModel = $expenses
->reduce(function (AreaChartModel $areaChartModel, $data) use ($expenses) {
return $areaChartModel->addPoint($data->description, $data->amount, ['id' => $data->id]);
}, (new AreaChartModel())
->setTitle('Expenses Peaks')
->setAnimated($this->firstRun)
->setColor('#f6ad55')
->withOnPointClickEvent('onAreaPointClick')
->setXAxisVisible(false)
->setYAxisVisible(true)
);
$this->firstRun = false;
return view('livewire.livewire-charts')
->with([ 'columnChartModel' => $columnChartModel, 'pieChartModel' => $pieChartModel, 'lineChartModel' => $lineChartModel, 'areaChartModel' => $areaChartModel,
]);
}
}

After that, Navigate to resources/views/livewire folder and open livewire-charts.blade.php file. Then add the following code into your livewire-charts.blade.php.blade.php file:

<div class="container mx-auto space-y-4 p-4 sm:p-0">
<ul class="flex flex-col sm:flex-row sm:space-x-8 sm:items-center">
<li>
<input type="checkbox" value="travel" wire:model="types"/>
<span>Travel</span>
</li>
<li>
<input type="checkbox" value="shopping" wire:model="types"/>
<span>Shopping</span>
</li>
<li>
<input type="checkbox" value="food" wire:model="types"/>
<span>Food</span>
</li>
<li>
<input type="checkbox" value="entertainment" wire:model="types"/>
<span>Entertainment</span>
</li>
<li>
<input type="checkbox" value="other" wire:model="types"/>
<span>Other</span>
</li>
</ul>
<div class="flex flex-col sm:flex-row space-y-4 sm:space-y-0 sm:space-x-4">
<div class="shadow rounded p-4 border bg-white flex-1" style="height: 32rem;">
<livewire:livewire-column-chart
key="{{ $columnChartModel->reactiveKey() }}"
:column-chart-model="$columnChartModel"
/>
</div>
<div class="shadow rounded p-4 border bg-white flex-1" style="height: 32rem;">
<livewire:livewire-pie-chart
key="{{ $pieChartModel->reactiveKey() }}"
:pie-chart-model="$pieChartModel"
/>
</div>
</div>
<div class="shadow rounded p-4 border bg-white" style="height: 32rem;">
<livewire:livewire-line-chart
key="{{ $lineChartModel->reactiveKey() }}"
:line-chart-model="$lineChartModel"
/>
</div>
<div class="shadow rounded p-4 border bg-white" style="height: 32rem;">
<livewire:livewire-area-chart
key="{{ $areaChartModel->reactiveKey() }}"
:area-chart-model="$areaChartModel"
/>
</div>
</div>

Step 6: Create Route

In this step, Navigate to routes folder and open web.php. Then add the following routes into your web.php file:

Route::get('/livewire-charts', function () {
return view('home');
});

Step 7: Create View File

In this step, navigate to resources/views/ folder and create one blade view files that name home.blade.php file. Then add the following code into your home.blade.php file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<title>Laravel 8 Livewire Charts</title>
<link href="https://unpkg.com/

[email protected]

^1.0/dist/tailwind.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<livewire:styles />
</head>
<body class="bg-gray-200 p-8">
<livewire:livewire-charts/>
<livewire:scripts />
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/alpinejs/

[email protected]

/dist/alpine.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/apexcharts"></script>
</body>
</html>
Note that, if you want to add HTML(blade views), CSS, and script code into your livewire files. So, you can use @livewireStyles, @livewireScripts, and @livewire(‘ blade views’).

Step 8: Run Development Server

Finally, you need to execute the following PHP artisan serve command to start your laravel livewire charts app:

php artisan serve

If you want to run the project diffrent port so use this below command

php artisan serve –port=8080

Now, open browser and test laravel 8 livewire charts app:

http://localhost:8000/livewire-charts
