*/

public function index()

{

$users = User::select(\DB::raw("COUNT(*) as count"))

->whereYear('created_at', date('Y'))

->groupBy(\DB::raw("Month(created_at)"))

<script type="text/javascript">

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

Highcharts.chart('container', {

title: {

text: 'New User Growth, 2019'

},

subtitle: {

text: 'Source: itsolutionstuff.com.com'

},

xAxis: {

},

yAxis: {

title: {

text: 'Number of New Users'

}

},

legend: {

layout: 'vertical',

align: 'right',

verticalAlign: 'middle'

},

plotOptions: {

series: {

allowPointSelect: true

}

},

series: [{

name: 'New Users',

data: users

}],

responsive: {

rules: [{

condition: {

maxWidth: 500

},

}

});

</script>
