Create React App

Let us start creating a new React project, you have to use the given command to generate a new app.

npx create-react-app demo-app

After the app is generated, enter into the app.

cd demo-app

Build Trend Lines Component

Next, we will create the `components` directory, after that create a new TrendChart.js file into the folder.

To build the trend chart, add the given code into the components/TrendChart.js.

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import Chart from 'react-google-charts'
const TrendData = [
  ['Diameter', 'Age'],
  [8, 37],
  [4, 19.5],
  [11, 52],
  [4, 22],
  [3, 16.5],
  [6.5, 32.8],
  [14, 72],
]
const TrendOptions = {
  title: 'Age of sugar maples vs. trunk diameter, in inches',
  hAxis: { title: 'Diameter' },
  vAxis: { title: 'Age' },
  legend: 'none',
  trendlines: { 0: {} },
}
class TrendChart extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <h2>React Trend Line Chart Example</h2>
        <Chart
          width={'600px'}
          height={'350px'}
          chartType="ScatterChart"
          loader={<div>Loading Chart</div>}
          data={TrendData}
          options={TrendOptions}
          rootProps={{ 'data-testid': '1' }}
        />
      </div>
    )
  }
}
export default TrendChart

Add Chart Component in App Js

After, the chart is ready, make sure to import the chart component in the App.js file.

import React from 'react'
import '../node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css'
import TrendChart from './components/TrendChart'
function App() {
  return (
    <div className="container mt-3">
      <TrendChart />
    </div>
  )
}
export default App
