npm install jquery.rateit

Basic usage:

1. Import the jquery.rateit into your project. Or directly include the following JS & CSS files on your html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<link href="rateit.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<script src="jquery.rateit.js"></script>

2. Create an HTML element for the rating control.

<!-- BASIC -->
<span class="rateit">

<!-- OR -->
<div class="rateit">

<!-- OR -->
<input type="range" min="0" max="5" value="0" step="0.5" id="backing1">
<div class="rateit" data-rateit-backingfld="#backing1"></div>

<!-- OR -->
<select id="backing2">
    <option value="1">Bad</option>
    <option value="2">OK</option>
    <option value="3">Great</option>
    <option value="4">Excellent</option>
<div class="rateit" data-rateit-backingfld="#backing2" data-rateit-min="0"></div>

3. That's it. You're allowed to config the rating control via the HTML5 data-OPTION attributes:
