PHP Codeigniter 4 Google Pie Chart Tutorial Example

In this tutorial, you will be taught how to create a Google pie chart in Codeigniter 4 app. You will integrate Google Pie Chart in Codeigniter from scratch; moreover, you will learn dynamic data integration in this Codeigniter Pie chart example.

A pie chart is a rounded or circular graphic divided into smaller slices and best used for displaying numerical proportion. The arc length of every slice depicts the numerical quantity.

We will show you how to use Google chart js and get month-wise data from mysql and display it into the google pie chart. So without wasting much time, let’s get started.

How to Add Google Pie Chart in Codeigniter 4 App

Download Codeigniter Project

Another method to download the app is by using the Composer command.

composer create-project codeigniter4/appstarter

The following url will land you on the official site, where you can download the latest version of the Codeigniter app.

Update Database Details

To make the app connection with the database, you have to add the database details into the app/Config/Database.php file.

public $default = [
        'DSN'      => '',
        'hostname' => 'localhost',
        'username' => 'db_username',
        'password' => 'db_password',
        'database' => 'db_name',
        'DBDriver' => 'MySQLi',
        'DBPrefix' => '',
        'pConnect' => false,
        'DBDebug'  => (ENVIRONMENT !== 'development'),
        'cacheOn'  => false,
        'cacheDir' => '',
        'charset'  => 'utf8',
        'DBCollat' => 'utf8_general_ci',
        'swapPre'  => '',
        'encrypt'  => false,
        'compress' => false,
        'strictOn' => false,
        'failover' => [],
        'port'     => 3306,

Create Database and Table

In this step, you have to run the provided command to create a new database, new table and add the data into the database.

CREATE TABLE `users` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Primary Key',
  `name` varchar(255) NOT NULL COMMENT 'name',
  `sales` varchar(55) NOT NULL COMMENT 'sales',    
  `created_at` varchar(30) NOT NULL COMMENT 'created at'

INSERT INTO `users` (`id`, `name`, `sales`, `created_at`) VALUES
(1, 'Marie Merritt', '2000', '2020-01-02'),
(2, 'Shoshana Jones', '3000', '2020-02-03'),
(3, 'Rickey Peed', '1000', '2020-03-02'),
(4, 'Sean Walker', '2500', '2020-04-05'),
(5, 'Patrick Frazier', '6000', '2020-05-04'),
(6, 'Neil Chevalier', '27000', '2020-06-07'),
(7, 'James Jackson', '1600', '2020-07-05'),
(8, 'Kayla George', '1200', '2020-08-06');

Make Controller File

In this section, you have to create the controller file and insert the functions to load the chart data from the database and display it into the chart using the SQL query.

Update code in app/Controllers/GraphController.php file.


namespace App\Controllers;
use CodeIgniter\Controller;

class GraphController extends Controller
    public function index() {
        return view('index');
    public function showGraph() {
        $db = \Config\Database::connect();
        $builder = $db->table('users');

        $query = $builder->select("COUNT(id) as count, sales as s, MONTHNAME(created_at) as month");
        $query = $builder->orderBy("s ASC, month ASC");
        $query = $builder->where("MONTH(created_at) GROUP BY MONTHNAME(created_at), s")->get();
        $record = $query->getResult();

        $usersData = [];

        foreach($record as $row) {
            $usersData[] = array(
                'month'   => $row->month,
                'sales' => floatval($row->s)
        $data['usersData'] = ($usersData);    
        return view('index', $data);                

Register Route

In this section, you have to open the app/Config/Routes.php, in this file, you have to create a new route. You can use this route to view the pie graph in the Codeigniter app.

 * --------------------------------------------------------------------
 * Route Definitions
 * --------------------------------------------------------------------

$routes->get('/display-pie-chart', 'GraphController::showGraph');

Create View File

In this section, we will create index.php file inside the app/Views folder and then you have to add the provided code into the app/Views/index.php file.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

	<meta charset="UTF-8">
	<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Pie Chart in Codeigniter Example</title>

	<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>


		<div class="container">
			<div id="graphPie" style="height: 600px; width: 100%"></div>

			google.charts.load('visualization', "1", {
				packages: ['corechart']

			function drawBarChart() {
				var data = google.visualization.arrayToDataTable([
					['Day', 'Users count'], 
					<?php foreach($usersData as $row) {
						echo "['".$row['month']."',".$row['sales']."],";
					} ?>

				var options = {
					is3D: true,
					title: ' Google Pie Chart'

				var chart = new google.visualization.PieChart(document.getElementById('graphPie'));
				chart.draw(data, options);


Run App in Browser

In the final section, you need to copy the provided command and run the Codeigniter server.

After the server started, make sure to type the given url on the browser and hit enter to see the pie chart.

php spark serve
