How To Create And Embed Trend Lines Chart In React

In this tutorial, we will learn how to use Google Charts to draw a trend line chart in a React App.

Firstly, we should know that a trend line is a line superimposed on a chart unveiling the overall direction of the data. For creating the trend line chart, we will add the React Google Charts package in React.

This package also offers other charts like Scatter Charts, Bar Charts, Column Charts, Line Charts, etc.

React Js Google Trend Lines Chart Example

Step 1- Create React App

Step 2- Install React Google Charts Package

Step 3- Build Trend Lines Component

Step 4- Add Chart Component In App Js

Step 5- Run The Application


Let’s learn in detail:

Step 1- Create React App

The basic step is to create a new react project for which we will have to use the following command:

npx create-react-app demo-app

Since the app, is generated, we will enter into it:

cd demo-app

Then, we have to install the bootstrap package:

npm install bootstrap

Afterward, we will import the bootstrap into the App.js file:

import '../node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css';


Step 2- Install React Google Charts Package

In the second step, we need to use the given command to install the Google Charts library in the React app:

# npm
npm install react-google-charts

# yarn
yarn add react-google-charts


Step 3- Build Trend Lines Component

Here, we will create the ‘components’ directory after which we create a new TrendChart.js file into the folder.

For building the trend chart, we have to 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 (
        <h2>React Trend Line Chart Example</h2>
          loader={<div>Loading Chart</div>}
          rootProps={{ 'data-testid': '1' }}

export default TrendChart


Step 4- Add Chart Component In App Js

Now, the chart is ready. We have 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 />

export default App


Step 5- Run The Application

So now, the trend diagram is ready and we will run the app by using the given command:

npm start



So friend, throughout this guide, we have learned how to create a simple line chart. Also, we can create a polynomial and exponential trend line chart.
