Movie rating example

<bar-rating [(rate)]="rate" [max]="4" [theme]="'movie'" [showText]="true"
 [titles]="['Bad', 'Mediocre' , 'Good', 'Awesome']"></bar-rating>

It can be used with angular forms and reactive forms, for example:

<form #form="ngForm">
  <bar-rating name="rating" [(ngModel)]="formRating" [max]="4" required disabled></bar-rating>
<p>form is valid: {{ form.valid ? 'true' : 'false' }}</p>
<pre>{{ formRating }}</pre>

Predefined themes

Add the rating theme either in index.html

<link rel="stylesheet" href="../node_modules/ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-default-theme.css"/>

Or in the global style style.scss (recommended)

  • Pure css stars (default) [theme]="'default'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-default-theme'
  • Bootstrap stars [theme]="'bootstrap'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-bootstrap-theme';
  • Fontawesome stars [theme]="'fontawesome'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-fontawesome-theme';
  • Fontawesome-o stars [theme]="'fontawesome-o'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-fontawesome-o-theme';
  • Horizontal bars [theme]="'horizontal'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-horizontal-theme';
  • Vertical bars [theme]="'vertical'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-vertical-theme';
  • Custom stars [theme]="'stars'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-stars-theme';
  • Movie rating [theme]="'movie'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-movie-theme';
  • Square rating [theme]="'square'"
@import '~ngx-bar-rating/themes/br-square-theme';

Rating style can be easily customized, check the classes used in any theme and add your own css.

You can also do the same for forms classes such as untouched, touched, dirty, invalid, valid ...etc

If you have a nice rating style you would like to share, prupose your theme and I will include it in the package.


If you identify any errors in this component, or have an idea for an improvement, please open an issue. I am excited to see what the community thinks of this project, and I would love your input!
