Codeigniter 4 Morris Stacked & Bar Chart Tutorial Example

Hi guys,

Today i will explained Morris Stacked & Bar Chart Tutorial Example in Codeigniter 4. This example is so easy to use in Codeigniter 4.

Today i will implemented to the Morris Stacked & Bar Chart in Codeigniter. I am implemented to the seven steps to implement in stacked & bar chart in Codeigniter.

So let's start to the example.

Step 1: Install Codeigniter Project

Codeigniter Project Project install in a two ways.


composer create-project codeigniter4/appstarter project_name

Step 2: Connect App to Database

Open the app/Config/Database.php, and insert database name, username and password into the file.

public $default = [

'DSN' => '',

'hostname' => 'localhost',

'username' => 'root',

'password' => '',

'database' => 'codeigniter_db',

'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,


Step 3: Create Table & Insert Data

Then next step to create table and insert to the few records.

CREATE TABLE `product` (

`id` int(11) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Primary Key',

`name` varchar(255) NOT NULL COMMENT 'name',

`sell` varchar(55) NOT NULL COMMENT 'sell',

`created_at` varchar(30) NOT NULL COMMENT 'created at'

) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 COMMENT='Atomic database';

INSERT INTO `product` (`id`, `name`, `sell`, `created_at`) VALUES

(1, 'Coca Cola', '5000', '2021-05-01'),

(2, 'Pepsi', '7000', '2021-05-02'),

(3, 'Coke Zero', '19000', '2021-05-03'),

(4, 'Pepsi Max', '1500', '2021-05-04'),

(5, 'Diet Coke', '19000', '2021-05-05'),

(6, 'Pepsi Light', '3000', '2021-05-06'),

(7, 'Gatorade', '22000', '2021-05-07');

Step 4: Make Controller File

You have to generate a new controller template, right after that add the following code into the app/Controllers/MorrisChartController.php file.


namespace App\Controllers;

use CodeIgniter\Controller;

class MorrisChartController extends Controller


public function index() {

return view('index');


public function startChart() {

$db = \Config\Database::connect();

$builder = $db->table('product');

$query = $builder->select("COUNT(id) as count, sell as s, DAYNAME(created_at) as day");

$query = $builder->where("DAY(created_at) GROUP BY DAYNAME(created_at), s");

$query = $builder->orderBy("s ASC, day ASC")->get();

$data['products'] = $query->getResult();

return view('index', $data);



Step 5: Make Route File

next to make the route for showing charts, you need to go to app/Config/Routes.php and define the given below routes in the file


$routes->get('/morris-charts', 'MorrisChartController::startChart');

Step 6: Setting Up View File

Create a view file, add morris js with the required dependencies like jQuery and Raphael to view template; create charts div and define respective ids to load the charts in both the div

Add code into app/Views/index.php file.

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en">

<!-- Add scripts -->

<script src="//"></script>

<script src="//"></script>

<script src="//"></script>


var serries = <?php echo json_encode($products); ?>;

var data = serries,

config = {

data: <?php echo json_encode($products); ?>,

xkey: 'day',

ykeys: ['s'],

labels: ['Sales this week'],

fillOpacity: 0.7,

hideHover: 'auto',

resize: true,

behaveLikeLine: true,

stacked: true,

barColors: "455"


// Call bar chart

config.element = 'MorrisBarChart';


// Call stacked chart

config.element = 'MorrisStakcedChart';

config.stacked = true;





Step 7: Run Application

In this last step, you have to open the terminal, type command to run the application.

php spark serve

Then next run the url in your browser.
