Get Angular Star Rating:

  • clone & build this repository
  • download as .zip
  • via npm: by running $ npm install angular-star-rating --save from your console

Consuming the library

As a precondition we consider you have your .angular-cli.json setup with an assets folder so that the ./src/assets folder is included in the bundled version. But this is given by default if you use the angular-cli to setup your project.

Now you can import your library in your angular application by running:

$ npm install angular-star-rating --save


$ npm install angular-star-rating@2.0.0-rc.5 --save

for a specific version.

Create an assets folder under your ./src folder and copy the images from your ./node_modules/angular-star-rating/assets/images folder into ./src/assets/images.

Also import the star.rating.scss file i.e. import it in your styles.scss file with @import "~angular-star-rating/assets/scss/star-rating";

In your app.module.ts import the StarRatingModule to your Angular AppModule:

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';  
import { StarRatingModule } from 'angular-star-rating';
  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Once your library is imported, you can use the components in your Angular application:

<!-- You can now use your library component in app.component.html -->
<star-rating-comp [starType]="'svg'" [rating]="2.63"></star-rating-comp>

If something is not working check if

  • the component renders the expected html
  • if you use the svg version check if the star-rating.icons.svg is present in your ./src/assets/images and loaded

Implement the output handler

import {Component} from "@angular/core";
import {OnClickEvent, OnRatingChangeEven, OnHoverRatingChangeEvent} from "angular-star-rating/src/star-rating-struct";
    selector: 'my-events-component',
    template: `    
            <star-rating-comp   [starType]="'svg'" 
            <p>onHoverRatingChangeResult: {{onHoverRatingChangeResult | json}}</p>
            <p>onClickResult: {{onClickResult | json}}</p>
            <p>onRatingChangeResult: {{onRatingChangeResult | json}}</p>
export class MyEventsComponent {
    onClick = ($event:OnClickEvent) => {
        console.log('onClick $event: ', $event);
        this.onClickResult = $event;
    onRatingChange = ($event:OnRatingChangeEven) => {
        console.log('onRatingUpdated $event: ', $event);
        this.onRatingChangeResult = $event;
    onHoverRatingChange = ($event:OnHoverRatingChangeEvent) => {
        console.log('onHoverRatingChange $event: ', $event);
        this.onHoverRatingChangeResult = $event;
<!-- app.component.html-->

Use it with reactive forms

As easy as it could be. Just apply the formControlName attribute to the star rating component.

import {Component} from "@angular/core";
import {FormGroup, FormControl} from "@angular/forms";
    selector: 'my-form-component',
    template: `    
        <form [formGroup]="form">
            <star-rating-comp [starType]="'svg'" formControlName="myRatingControl" ></star-rating-comp>
            <pre>{{ form.value | json }}</pre>
export class MyFormComponent {
    form = new FormGroup({
        myRatingControl: new FormControl('')
<!-- app.component.html-->
