Laravel BI v1.0.0 requires Laravel 8.0. If you have a previous Laravel version, please consider to use v0.0.5.

Main features and concept

Laravel Bi uses dashboards to show data to the users. Each dashboard contains widgets. Each widget presents data to your user using a different tool. Each widget’s metrics and dimensions are fully customizable.

At the moment, Laravel BI works only with mysql databases.


Attributes are common representation of Dimension and Metric. You can instantiate Attribute using create static method. It accepts 2 parameters:

  • key: a mandatory internal identifier
  • name: a mandatory label
StringDimension::create('name', 'The Name');
SumMetric::create('unique_name_for_some_of_prices', 'The Sum');

Some extra methods are available:

  • column($columnName) to set a custom database column name (defaulted to key)
  • color($color) to set a custom color for the attribute (it will be used in charts)

You can chain all these methods:

SumMetric::create('unique_name_for_some_of_prices', 'The Sum')


Dimensions are attributes of your data. Laravel-Bi is shipped with some pre-configured dimensions:

  • StringDimension
  • YearDimension
  • MonthDimension
  • DayDimension
  • DateDimension
  • BelongsToDimension
  • RawDimension

Metrics are quantitative measurements. Each metric show absolute values. If you need to show the percentage of the total, you can use asPercentage() method Laravel-Bi is shipped with some preconfigured metrics:
