            title: {
                display: true,

const chart = new Chart(ctx, {
    type: 'line',
    data: data,
    options: {
        plugins: {
            title: {
                display: true,
                text: 'Custom Chart Title',
                padding: {
                    top: 10,
                    bottom: 30
                }
            }
        }
    }
});
