4. The necessary JavaScript (jQuery Script) to activate the rating control. Paste and insert them after you've loaded the latest jQuery library.

$('.rating ul li').on('click', function() {

  let li = $(this),
      ul = li.parent(),
      rating = ul.parent(),
      last = ul.find('.current');

  if(!rating.hasClass('animate-left') && !rating.hasClass('animate-right')) {

      last.removeClass('current');

      ul.children('li').each(function() {
          let current = $(this);
          current.toggleClass('active', li.index() > current.index());
      });

      rating.addClass(li.index() > last.index() ? 'animate-right' : 'animate-left');
      rating.css({
          '--x': li.position().left + 'px'
      });
      li.addClass('move-to');
      last.addClass('move-from');

      setTimeout(() => {
          li.addClass('current');
          li.removeClass('move-to');
          last.removeClass('move-from');
          rating.removeClass('animate-left animate-right');
      }, 800);

  }

})
