In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a star rating or star feedback component in Vue using Flowbite Vue and Tailwind CSS.

A star rating system is a tool that is mainly used to collect the information by the users in relation to the usability or emotions about their decisions.

A star rating is an essential UI component and primarily used in user interfaces to permit site visitors to rate or review items, products, services, or content using a set of stars.

Generically, each and every star signifies a specific level of rating, ideally ranging from one to five stars, where a higher number of stars shows a better rating.

Throughout this step by step guide, we will show you how you can quite easily crate the star rating component in Vue. This star rating component can be used in different web, mobile applications, e-commerce websites, review platforms, and many more.

  • Step 3: Add Tailwind CSS
  • Step 4: Create Component File
  • Step 5: Build Star Rating Component
  • Step 6: Update App Component

Install Vue App

The first requirement of this guide is to set up Node in your development system, you can download and install Node from: https://nodejs.org/.

The second most important thing is to set up Vue CLI, Vue cli lets you download Vue framework and develop apps in Vue environment.

npm install -g @vue/cli

We are now fully ready to install a new Vue application, you can execute given command to get started with Vue.

vue create vue-demo-app

Remember to choose Vue 3 from the given options.

Head over to the project directory:

cd vue-demo-app

Add Flowbite Package

Flowbite is a powerful library that offers dynamic, flexible UI components that are ready to use without writing the additional HTML and CSS:

 npm install flowbite flowbite-vue --legacy-peer-deps

Add Tailwind CSS

In the next step, you have to first open the public/index.html file.

Within the head area, make sure to add the Tailwind CSS and script as given below.

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  ...
  ...

  <script src="https://cdn.tailwindcss.com"></script>
  <script>
    tailwind.config = {
      theme: {
        extend: {
          colors: {
            clifford: '#da373d',
          }
        }
      }
    }
  </script>
</head>
<body>
   
</body>
</html>

Create Component File

To accommodate the code for star rating system we need to create a components/BlogComp.vue file.

<template>
    <div>
        
    </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
    data() {
        return {
        }
    }
}
</script>

Build Star Rating Component

The following code example implements the Flowbite star rating component in Vue.

You can import and define the Rating module to display the start rating in Vue. You can customize the star rating module by defining the sizes, add text, review text etc.

Add code in the components/BlogComp.vue file:

<script setup>
import { Rating } from 'flowbite-vue'
</script>
<template>
    <Rating :rating="4">
      <template #besideText>
          <p class="ml-2 text-sm font-medium text-gray-500 dark:text-gray-400">4.95 out of 5</p>
        </template>
    </Rating>
</template>

Update App Component

To register the newly created module in Vue, you have to import and define the component name in the App.vue file.

<template>
  <div class="mx-auto max-w-2xl lg:max-w-5xl">
    <h2 class="text-2xl font-bold tracking-tight sm:text-3xl mb-6 mt-6">

    <BlogComp />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import BlogComp from "./components/BlogComp.vue";

export default {
  components: {
    BlogComp,
  },
};
</script>

View App on Browser

We can now start the development server by running the following command:

npm run serve

Here is the URL that will help you to view the app on the browser.
