Google Charts Angular Tutorial

What is Google Charts?

Google Charts has a wide variety of charts and operates with both SVG and HTML5 technology to be highly compatible. It is free to use and is a great library to launch charting. It doesn't offer as much customizability as some other charting libraries, but is a great solution.

What is Angular?

Angular is a popular open-source framework developed by Google for building dynamic web applications. It's part of a broader ecosystem that includes tools and libraries designed to work together to enable efficient development of high-quality applications. Angular is known for its robustness, scalability, and ability to create single-page applications (SPAs) that offer a smooth, native-like user experience. Angular has a component-based architecture, enabling great modularity. Additionally, it is great at syncing data between a view and a model. It can have a steep learning curve, but has a great community and high performance.

Google Charts Angular Code Example

In this guide, we will integrate Google Charts into an Angular application. We'll display a simple pie chart as an example. Ensure you have Angular CLI installed and set up before proceeding.

Step 1: Setup Angular Project

Create a new Angular project by running the following command in your terminal:

ng new google-charts-angular-example

Move into your project directory:

cd google-charts-angular-example

Step 2: Install Angular Google Charts

Add the Angular Google Charts module to your project with this command:

npm install angular-google-charts

Step 3: Import AngularGoogleChartsModule

Open app.module.ts and import AngularGoogleChartsModule from angular-google-charts. Add it to the @NgModule imports array:

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AngularGoogleChartsModule } from 'angular-google-charts';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

 declarations: [
 imports: [
 providers: [],
 bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Step 4: Add Google Chart to a Component

Open app.component.ts and set up the chart options and data. For our example, we'll create a simple pie chart:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

 selector: 'app-root',
 template: `
export class AppComponent {
 title = 'google-charts-angular-example';

 chart = {
   type: 'PieChart',
   data: [
     ['Task', 'Hours per Day'],
     ['Work', 11],
     ['Eat', 2],
     ['Commute', 2],
     ['Watch TV', 2],
     ['Sleep', 7]
   columnNames: ['Task', 'Hours per Day'],
   options: {
     is3D: true

Step 5: Run Your Application

Start your application by running:

ng serve

Open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:4200. You should see your Google Chart rendered on the page.
