vue js

In this blog, we will learn how to create a star rating system in vue 3 by using flowbite vue and tailwind css. Star rating system is a very important tool for our customers to send their comments as stars. It will make products or services easily interact with the users.

This tool provides a set of stars to show the level of better or worse rating of the products or services. The set of stars like 1 to 5 stars will be given on the site. The customer will choose the level of their rating for their purchased products or services on the site. This tool can be used in different websites, mobile applications, e-commerce websites, review platforms, and many more.

Follow the below steps to create this.

Step 1: Install vue app

Step 2: Add flowbite package

Step 3: Add tailwind css

Step 4: Create component file

Step 5: Build star rating component

Step 6: Update app component

Step 7: View app on browser

Step 1: Install vue app

First we need to set the node app on our development system. Then add the Vue CLI to download the frameworks for the vue environment.

Follow the below command to install the vue application.

npm install -g @vue/cli 

Then add the below command to get started with vue and choose vue 3 from the given options.

vue create vue-demo-app 

Next, go to the project directory.

cd vue-demo-app 

Step 2: Add flowbite package

In this step, we have to add the flowbite package to our app. It offers dynamic and flexible UI components that are ready to use without writing the additional html and css.

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

Step 3: Add tailwind css

In step 3, we have to open the public/index.html file and add the below tailwind css and script  to the header area.

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

Step 4: Create component file

The next step, we need to create a components/BlogComp.vue file to create a star rating system.

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

Step 5: Build star rating component

In step 5, we need to add the below codes to components/BlogComp.vue file to create the flowbite star rating component in vue. Here, we can customize the star rating module by defining the sizes, add text and review text etc.

<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 out of 5</p>
        </template>
    </Rating>
</template> 

Step 6: Update app component

In this step, we need to register the newly created module in vue, we 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">
      Star rating system in vue 3 example
    </h2>
    <BlogComp />
  </div>
</template>
<script>
import BlogComp from "./components/BlogComp.vue";
export default {
  components: {
    BlogComp,
  },
};
</script> 

Step 7: View app on browser

In the final step, Follow the below command to start the development server.

npm run serve 

Then open http://localhost:8080 link to view the app on the browser.
