Create Route

First of all, we will create simple route for creating simple line chart. Let's add simple routes as like bellow:


from masonite.routes import Route

ROUTES = [Route.get("/", "WelcomeController@show"),
          Route.get("/chart", "ChartController@show")       

Create Controller

Here, we will create new controller as ChartController.

python craft controller ChartController

So let's add bellow code on that controller file.

from masonite.controllers import Controller
from masonite.views import View

class ChartController(Controller):
    def show(self, view: View):
        labels= ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July']
        data= [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
        return view.render("chart.index",{'labels':labels,'data':data})

Create Template File

We will create the html file (chart/index.html) and in this file we will import chartjs. Please find the relevant code for this file.

      const config = {

        data: data,
        options: {}

      const myChart = new Chart(
