For the time being you can have a look at "Populating Data Using Server Side Code". The code below basically replaces getData.php and sampleData.json and allows you to dynamically change the output.


 * A bunch of use-statements
 * (assuming you have some kind of autoloading mechanism)
use AMNL\Google\Chart\Table;
use AMNL\Google\Chart\Column;
use AMNL\Google\Chart\Row;
use AMNL\Google\Chart\Type as T;

/* The actual code */
$pizzaTable = new Table(
    new Column(new T\String(), 'Topping'),
    new Column(new T\Number(), 'Slices')

$pizzaTable->addRow(new Row('Mushrooms', 3));
$pizzaTable->addRow(new Row('Onions', 1));
$pizzaTable->addRow(new Row('Olives', 1));
$pizzaTable->addRow(new Row('Zucchini', 1));
$pizzaTable->addRow(new Row('Pepperoni', 2));

/* JSON Output */
header('Content-Type: application/json');
echo $pizzaTable->toJson();
