Laravel 5.6 using laracharts. Chart wont render

Posted 7 months ago by andremac96


I'm trying to test out laracharts using laravel 5.6. The chart doesn't print out in the view, only the code in text form.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use Khill\Lavacharts\Lavacharts;

class HomeController extends Controller

    public function index()

        $votes  = Lava::DataTable();

        $votes->addStringColumn('Food Poll')
              ->addRow(['Tacos',  rand(1000,5000)])
              ->addRow(['Salad',  rand(1000,5000)])
              ->addRow(['Pizza',  rand(1000,5000)])
              ->addRow(['Apples', rand(1000,5000)])
              ->addRow(['Fish',   rand(1000,5000)]);
        Lava::BarChart('Votes', $votes);
        $data['votes'] = Lava::BarChart('Votes', $votes);

        return view('pages/home', $data);



@barchart('Votes', 'poll_div')


This is the output in my view. No chart only code.
