Getting Started

Below you can see the simple markup required to create a rating component:

Stars

Try on JSFiddle

<star-rating></star-rating>

Hearts

heart-rating.png

Try on JSFiddle

<heart-rating></heart-rating>

Images

image-rating.png

Try on JSFiddle

<image-rating src="/images/vueLogo.png"></image-rating>

Font Awesome Thumbs-up Glyph

fa-thumbs-up.png

Try on JSFiddle

<fa-rating v-bind:glyph="thumbsUp"></fa-rating>

Note: The fa-rating component requires you to first register the font-awesome glyph you want to use in your Vue instance, which is why this example uses v-bind (see: font-awesome rating component docs)

Setup

NPM

It is recommended that you install vue-rate-it via npm:

npm install vue-rate-it

Once installed you can import the rating components like so:

import {StarRating} from 'vue-rate-it';
import {HeartRating} from 'vue-rate-it';
import {FaRating} from 'vue-rate-it';
import {ImageRating} from 'vue-rate-it';

You may also import all of the components at once, however, you will still need to register each component individually:

import Raters from 'vue-rate-it';

Registering the Rating Components

Global Registration

You can register your raters globally by doing the following:

import Raters from 'vue-star-rating';
Vue.component('star-rating', Raters.StarRating);
Vue.component('heart-rating', Raters.HeartRating);
Vue.component('fa-rating', Raters.FaRating);
Vue.component('image-rating', Raters.ImageRating);

Local Registration

You can register your raters in the components that you want to use them in by doing the following:

import {StarRating} from 'vue-rate-it';

export default{
  components:{
    StarRating
  }
}

You can find details about all the available props, events and options on the docs github pages

Using the CDN

It is recommended that you use vue-rate-it via NPM, however, each rating component does have a dist file available via unpkg. To use the raters via CDN simply include the following in your web page. These components are registered automatically:

Star Rating

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/vue-rate-it/dist/cdn/star-rating.min.js">

Heart Rating

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/vue-rate-it/dist/cdn/heart-rating.min.js">

Fa Rating (Font-awesome)

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/vue-rate-it/dist/cdn/fa-rating.min.js">

Note: The fa-rating component CDN is intended for demonstrative purposes only. It contains an entire port of font-awesome glyphs which makes it more than 700kB in size. It is strongly recommended that you use this component via NPM where you can specify the glyphs that you want to import.

Image Rating

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/vue-rate-it/dist/cdn/image-rating.min.js">

All Features

You may also include all features and raters via CDN by doing:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/vue-rate-it/dist/cdn/vue-rate-it.min.js">

Note: This CDN file is intended for demonstrative purposes only. It contains an entire port of font-awesome glyphs which makes it more than 700kB in size. It is strongly recommended that you use NPM where you can specify any glyphs that you want to import.

Registering the Raters

When importing all features via CDN, the raters are not automatically registered, so you will need to register them yourself by doing:

Vue.component('star-rating', VueRateIt.StarRating);
Vue.component('heart-rating', VueRateIt.HeartRating);
Vue.component('image-rating', VueRateIt.ImageRating);
Vue.component('fa-rating', VueRateIt.FaRating);

You may also register them in your view model:

new Vue({
  el: "#app",
  components:{
    'star-rating': VueRateIt.StarRating
  }
});

You can find details about all the available props, events and options on the docs github pages

Syncing Ratings between Parent and Child

The first thing you will want to do is sync your ratings between the parent and the rating component. If you are using Vue 2.2 and above the simplest way to sync the rating is to use v-model:

Basic Markup

<heart-rating v-model="rating"></heart-rating>

Complete Example

<template>
  <div>
    <heart-rating v-model="rating"></heart-rating>
    <div>Currently Selected: {{rating}}</div>
    <div><a href="#" @click.prevent="rating = 0">Reset Rating</a></div> 
  </div>
</template>

<script type="text/javascript">   
import {HeartRating} from 'vue-rate-it';

export default{
  components: {
    HeartRating
  },
  data(){
    return {
      rating: 3
    }
  }
}
</script>

Syncing Ratings in Vue 2.1 and below

It isn't possible to use v-model on the component in Vue.js 2.1 and below, however, the following is the equivalent of the v-model example above:

Basic Markup

<heart-rating @rating-selected="rating = $event" :rating="rating"></heart-rating>

Complete Example

<template>
  <div>
    <heart-rating @rating-selected="rating = $event" :rating="rating"></heart-rating>
    <div>Currently Selected: {{rating}}</div>
    <div><a href="#" @click.prevent="rating = 0">Reset Rating</a></div> 
  </div>
</template>

<script type="text/javascript">   
import {HeartRating} from 'vue-rate-it';

export default{
  components: {
    HeartRating
  },
  data(){
    return {
      rating: 3
    }
  }
}
</script>
