You need just to have a div to build the Raty.



Used when we want starts with a saved rating.

$('div').raty({ score: 3 });

Score callback

If you need to start you score depending of a dynamic value, you can to use callback for it.
You can pass any value for it, not necessarily a data- value. You can use a field value for example.

<div data-score="1"></div>
  score: function() {
    return $(this).attr('data-score');

Score Name

Changes the name of the hidden score field.

$('div').raty({ scoreName: 'entity[score]' });


Changes the number of stars.

$('div').raty({ number: 10 });

Number callback

You can receive the number of stars dynamic using callback to set it.

<div data-number="3"></div>
  number: function() {
    return $(this).attr('data-number');

Number Max

Change the maximum of start that can be created.

  numberMax : 5,
  number    : 100

Read Only

You can prevent users to vote. It can be applied with or without score and all stars will receives the hint corresponding of the selected star.
Stop the mouse over the stars to see:

$('div').raty({ readOnly: true, score: 3 });

Read Only callback

You can decide if the rating will be readOnly dynamically returning true of false on callback.

  readOnly: function() {
    return 'true becomes readOnly' == 'true becomes readOnly';

No Rated Message

If readOnly is enabled and there is no score, the hint "Not rated yet!" will be shown for all stars. But you can change it.
Stop the mouse over the star to see:

  readOnly   : true,
  noRatedMsg : "I'am readOnly and I haven't rated yet!"

Half Show

You can represent a float score as a half star icon.
This options is just to show the half star. If you want enable the vote with half star on mouseover, please check the option half.
The round options showed belows is just for the icon, the score keeps as float always.


The round rules are:

  • Down: score <= x.25 the star will be rounded down;
  • Half: score >= x.26 and <= x.75 the star will be a half star;
  • Up: score >= x.76 the star will be rounded up.
$('div').raty({ score: 3.26 });


The rules becomes:

  • Down: score < x.6 the star will be rounded down;
  • Up: score >= x.6 the star will be rounded up;
  halfShow : false,
  score    : 3.26


You can customize the round values of the halfShow option.
We changed the default interval [x.25 .. x.76], now x.26 will round down instead of to be a half star.
Remember that the full attribute is used only when halfShow is disabled.
You can specify just the attribute you want to change and keeps the others as default.

  round : { down: .26, full: .6, up: .76 },
  score : 3.26


Enables the half star mouseover to be possible vote with half values.
If you want to vote with more precison than half value, please check the option precision.

$('#star').raty({ half: true });

Star Half

Changes the name of the half star.
Pay attention, when you want specify a different icon with a different directory, you must to set the path option to null to avoid it to be prepended on your path and, consequently, specify all other icons with explicit original path.

  half     : true,
  starHalf : 'star-half-mono.png'

You can to use the size of icon you want.

  cancel  : true,
  starOff : 'star-off-big.png',
  starOn  : 'star-on-big.png'


Callback to handle the score and the click event on click action.
You can mension the Raty element (DOM) itself using this.

  click: function(score, evt) {
    alert('ID: ' + + "\nscore: " + score + "\nevent: " + evt);

Click Prevent

If you return false into callback, the click action will be prevented.

  click: function(score, evt) {
    alert('Score will not change.')
    return false;


Changes the hint for each star by it position on array.
If you pass null, the score value of this star will be the hint.
If you pass undefined, this position will be ignored and receive the default hint.

$('div').raty({ hints: ['a', null, '', undefined, '*_*']});


Changes the path where your icons are located.
Set it only if you want the same path for all icons.
Don't mind about the last slash of the path, if you don't put it, it will be setted for you.

$('div').raty({ path: 'assets/images' });

Now we have the following full paths: assets/images/star-on.png, assets/images/star-off.png and so.

Path Callback

You can set the path dinamically using callback.

<div data-path="assets/images"></div>
  path: function() {
    return this.getAttribute('data-path');

Star Off and Star On

Changes the name of the star on and star off.

  starOff : 'off.png',
  starOn  : 'on.png'


Add a cancel button on the left side of the stars to cacel the score.
Inside the click callback the argument code receives the value null when we click on cancel button.

$('div').raty({ cancel: true });

Cancel Hint

Like the stars, the cancel button have a hint too, and you can change it.
Stop the mouse over the cancel button to see:

  cancel     : true,
  cancelHint : 'My cancel hint!'

Cancel Place

Changes the cancel button to the right side.

  cancel      : true,
  cancelPlace : 'right'

Cancel off and Cancel On

Changes the on and off icon of the cancel button.

  cancel    : true,
  cancelOff : 'cancel-off.png',
  cancelOn  : 'cancel-on.png'

Icon Range

It's an array of objects where each one represents a custom icon.
The range attribute is until wich position the icon will be displayed.
The on attribute is the active icon.
The off attribute is the inactive icon.

  iconRange: [
    { range: 1, on: '1.png', off: '0.png' },
    { range: 2, on: '2.png', off: '0.png' },
    { range: 3, on: '3.png', off: '0.png' },
    { range: 4, on: '4.png', off: '0.png' },
    { range: 5, on: '5.png', off: '0.png' }

You can use an interval of the same icon jumping some number.
The range attribute must be in an ascending order.
If the value on or off is omitted then the attribute starOn and starOff will be used.

  starOff   : '0.png',
  iconRange : [
    { range : 1, on: '1.png' },
    { range : 3, on: '3.png' },
    { range : 5, on: '5.png' }

Now we have all off icons as 0.png, icons 1 and 2 as 1.png, icon 3 as 3.png and icons 4 and 5 as 5.png.


Some place to display the hints or the cancelHint.

  cancel : true,
  target : '#hint'

Your target can be a div.

<div id="hint"></div>

Your target can be a text field.

<input id="hint" type="text" />

Your target can be a textarea.

<textarea id="hint"></textarea>

Your target can be a select.

<select id="hint">
  <option value="">--</option>
  <option value="bad">bad</option>
  <option value="poor">poor</option>
  <option value="regular">regular</option>
  <option value="good">good</option>
  <option value="gorgeous">gorgeous</option>

Target Type

You have the option hint or score to chosse.
You can choose to see the score instead the hints using the value score.
For the cancel button the value is empty.

  cancel     : true,
  target     : '#hint',
  targetType : 'score'

Target Keep

If you want to keep the score into the hint box after you do the rating, turn on this option.

  cancel     : true,
  target     : '#hint',
  targetKeep : true

Target Text

Normally all target is keeped blank if you don't use the targetKeep option.
If you want a default content you can use this option.

  target     : '#hint',
  targetText : '--'

Target Format

You can choose a template to be merged with your hints and displayed on target.

  target       : '#hint',
  targetFormat : 'Rating: {score}'

Target Score

You can keep the score value inside the binded element by default or choose where to put it.
If you change the score target, the default score field won't be created.
It is not like target option for display purpose, it is the real current score data.

  targetScore: '#target'


You can handle the action on mouseover.
The arguments is the same of the click callback.
The options target, targetFormat, targetKeep, targetText and targetType are abstractions of this callback. You can do it by yourself.

  mouseover: function(score, evt) {
    alert('ID: ' + + "\nscore: " + score + "\nevent: " + evt);


You can handle the action on mouseout.
The arguments is the same of the mouseover callback.

  mouseout: function(score, evt) {
    alert('ID: ' + + "\nscore: " + score + "\nevent: " + evt);


You can get the right position of the cursor to get a precision score.
The star is represented just as half and full star, but the score is saved with precision.
When you enable this option the half options is automatically enabled and targetType is changed to score.

  cancel     : true,
  cancelOff  : 'cancel-off.png',
  cancelOn   : 'cancel-on.png',
  path       : 'demo/images',
  starHalf   : 'star-half.png',
  starOff    : 'star-off.png',
  starOn     : 'star-on.png',
  target     : '#precision-hint',
  targetKeep : true,

  precision  : true


You can take off the space between the star.

$('#space').raty({ space: false });


You can turn on just the mouseovered star instead all from the first until that one.

$('#single').raty({ single: true });

Star Type

It lets you to change the star element type. Changing it from img to i, for example, gives you the change to use font instead image. There is a sample CSS (demo/stylesheets/jquery.raty.css) using a sample fonts (demo/fonts/jquery.raty.[eot|svg|ttf|woff]).

To be easier to use, we replace the dot (.) extension to hyphen (-), so you do not need to change the original names, just set the names to your fonts. We recommend you use the Ico Moon app to be possible to download only the icons you need and rename it.

  cancel   : true,
  half     : true,
  starType : 'i'

Changing the settings globally

    I have created a very simple page. But it doesn't work with score attribute. I cannot find where the problem is. It will show 5 grey stars, but it should show 3 yellow stars.

    $.fn.raty.defaults.path = 'js/images';
    $(function() {
        $('#score').raty({ score: 3 });
    1. Washington Botelho author


      The options score just do the rating.
      If you want to change the numbe of stars, use the option number.

  2. Muhammad Saleh

    Quick tip for anyone who will use Raty in RTL application
    you will find that the half star icon will work properly in LTR as it will be flipped in RTL

    To fix that don't create a new image just use this snippet:

      -moz-transform: scaleX(-1);
        -webkit-transform: scaleX(-1);
        -o-transform: scaleX(-1);
        transform: scaleX(-1);
        -ms-filter: fliph; /*IE*/
        filter: fliph; /*IE*/

    The previous snippet will flip the image horizontally and it's cross browser.

    Happy Coding!

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Muhammad Saleh,

      Thanks! (:

  3. Naseer

    The click callback is not working with other options. My code is...

    $(document).ready(function() {
      $('#star-<?php echo $result['ItemId']; ?>').raty({
        readOnly  : true,
        score     : <?php echo $result['StarRating']; ?>,
        hints     : ['<?php echo $result['StarRating']; ?> out of 5 stars', '<?php echo $result['StarRating']; ?> out of 5 stars', '<?php echo $result['StarRating']; ?> out of 5 stars', '<?php echo $result['StarRating']; ?> out of 5 stars', '<?php echo $result['StarRating']; ?> out of 5 stars'],
        precision : true,
        click     : function() {
          alert('score: ');
    1. Washington Botelho author


      First, when you have a doubt try to do a simpler example as possible.
      I don't know if some of your dynamic PHP variable is breaking something.
      Put some code on a live example on web then pass us the link.

  4. Websun

    How can I start using this Raty? What else do I need other than jquery.js and jquery.raty.js?
    Sorry if this question looks silly.

    1. Washington Botelho author


      The best way to know how to use Raty is check this demo page. But basically is this:

      <script src="jquery.js"></script>
      <script src="jquery.raty.js"></script>
    2. Muhammad Saleh


      You will also need the images for the
      star on
      star off
      star half

      and you may skip the fonts ;) I did that

  5. Tom

    Is it possible to turn off the hints all together?
    When I pass null and it shows the 'score', it's not showing the fraction amount. I.e. a score of 3.5 for the hint is showing as 3. As such, I'd like to turn it off.

    1. Washington Botelho author


      The version 2.7.0 will suport fraction hint.
      You can use the code from master to test it before the official release.

  6. anon

    Wow, I'm impressed. This is very nice

  7. Waleed


    Is it possible to have a different image on hovering and different for a set rating. For example normally if i have a 3 star out of 5 star rating already set as the average user rating, so the 3 stars are yellow. What if while hovering over the stars i want to have orange stars showing your hover selection and when you select it say 4 star you set 4 stars yellow


    1. Washington Botelho author


      The same request of Alex.
      Please, open an issue.

  8. alex

    Feature Request:

    It would be nice if there were 4 states with 4 images. Currently this is used only for ON or OFF, so you can show only what the user has voted for before or what they are voting for now. Many sites have a need to show the average vote across all users as well. In that case you would need 4 states (OFF, ON-USER, ON-COMMUNITY, ON-BOTH). That way you can show both how this particular user voted as well as the average community vote.

    1. Washington Botelho author


      It is a lot more code and I don't know if is a good idea.
      The plugins is big enough. But open an issue and lats watch the +1's.

  9. Shawn


    First, thank you for writing and sharing this. It has saved me a lot of time and works great!

    Second, I do have one small issue with cancel. It seems to work great in non-IE browsers (figures). In IE, it clears the rating when I mouseover the cancel image but as soon as I move my mouse off of the cancel image, my rating is reset to the original. Any ideas?

    Thanks again,

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Could you open an issue?

  10. Elad


    I am trying to change the to readonly onclick but it is not working.

    Here is my code (my div's ID is starRating):

        click: function(score, evt) {
          $('#starRating').raty('readOnly', true);

    What am I doing wrong?

    1. Washington Botelho author


      I run you code and it works.

  11. Teo Dragovic


    is it possible to extend plugin so it outputs <span> element with starOn and starOff as classes? I'm thinking of using icon font instead of images.


    1. Washington Botelho author

      Teo Dragovic,

      Yes, use the version 2.6.0 with option starType.

  12. Tatiana Perere


    I want only the star selected get marked. How can I do that?

    Thank you!

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Tatiana Perere,

      Use the options single.

    2. Tatiana Perere

      Did it changing the js lib.

      I suggest to add this feature as an option. Very easy to do it.


      1. Washington Botelho author

        Tatiana Perere,

        Good job, but it is a option called single.
        But the next time a pull request is a polite thanks.

        1. Tatiana Perere

          Washington Botelho,

          Hey man, I'm sorry.

          I undo those changes and I use the single=true option now.

          But the mouseOver behavior was bothering me, so I added the code on

          _bindOver: function() { :
          else {
    , score);

          and to have the mark action onclick I added the same mouseOut bind to onClick bind:

            $(this).on('click.raty', function(evt) {
              var score = parseFloat(self.score.val()) || undefined;
      , score);
      , score, evt);
                if (self.opt.mouseout) {
        , score, evt);

          Now I have a very different behavior when using SINGLE.


  13. Hussaim

    Can i change name of <input type="hidden">?
    i want to assign parent div name to hidden element name

    <div class='star' name=n>
      <input type='hidden' name=parentName>
    1. Washington Botelho author


      Yes, use the option scoreName.

  14. florin

    Same question as Jing bellow :)

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Same answer! :)

  15. Jing

    I hope after clicking the star become read-only.
    How should do?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Inside click callback, calls the readOnly function.

  16. Joey

    First, thanks for the plugin!

    I deployed the plugin, but was having trouble with the validation of the rating. I wanted to use my own element to house the score. I used the scoreName & targetScore, but the plugin always creates an element with the same name as the one I created. Is there a way to tell the plugin to no generate an element?


    1. Washington Botelho author


      The score element is create only if you don't provide a valid (existent) target score:

  17. cesar

    when i write the html code with jquery, a click function doesn't work

    $("#div1").html("<div id='star' data-score='1'></div>");

    help me please and excusa me, a dont speak english :D

    1. Washington Botelho author


      It should be work, since you bind the Raty after the HTML is on body.

      var star = $('<div id="star" data-score="1"></div>').appendTo('#div1');
  18. rent-aroom

    Thank you for the script. Looking great :-)

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Good to hear that.
      Great job and thanks! (:

  19. John Paul

    Is there any way to stop the user from submitting another rating after they have already sent one? I am recording these to database and want it to be a one time thing per user. Could I set it to read only after my POST?

    1. Washington Botelho author

      John Paul,

      You can, but it is just JS, Raty can't do it for you.
      You can set it to read-only the time you want, but the time and how you want to do this, is up to you.

  20. José Leite

    Washington Botelho,

    I wrote the following code:

    {{if comments:}}
      {{for idx, comment in enumerate(comments):}}
        <div class="badge badge-warning" id="star{{idx}}">{{=comment.rating}}</div>
            numberMax : 10,
            readOnly: true,
            score: {{=comment.rating}}
    1. Washington Botelho author

      José Leite,

      Build your HTML elements first, then after apply Raty using class and getting the rating from data attribute, like so:

      <div data-rating="{{= comment.rating}}" class="badge badge-warning">{{= comment.rating}}</div>
        score: function() {
          return this.getAttribute('data-rating');
  21. Swagata

    I tried the mouse over but it did not work. on mouse over call back , I was setting the score in a hidden variable , to get it's value on form post.

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Raty already has a hidden field called score by default the you can change.
      Your you can use the new option scoreTarget and decide to where send the score.
      Your you can use your ideia and copy the score for wherever you want.

  22. Marc Stein

    Hi Washington,

    I'm having a styling issue with Raty that I've been unable to solve.

    If you take a look at you can see that the stars stack vertically rather than displaying inline. I'v tried overriding the img tag formatting in style.css but this doesn't seem to do the trick. Any thoughts as to how to resolve this?

    Many thanks in advance,


    Great plugin, BTW!

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Marc Stein,

      I could not to see the problem.
      But you can set space: off to avoid empty space and then manipulate the images.

  23. Surjit Sidhu

    I want to display "based on x reviews" after stars. how can do this ?
    i tried to modify js function, but does not find exact line to change

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Surjit Sidhu,

      You need to use the target options.
      But if you want to display the number of reviews, you should keep it on database and display it for your own.

  24. sudarshan

    Hello sir, nice work.
    I have one doubt I am not getting img of stars when I used it in Codeigniter project. Can you tell me where can I provide Base url for img folder??

    1. Washington Botelho author


      The base URL is up to you and your framework.
      Raty can't provide it for you, sorry.

    2. Vlad


      Had the same issue,

        path: 'img/',

      if that doesnt work try,

      jQuery(function($) {
            path: 'img/',
      1. Washington Botelho author


        It could work, but the case is not the whole Raty, just the images.

      2. Malek

        the slash is added programmatically I noticed.
        So just 'img' and the stars assets should be loaded correctly. Vlad,

        1. Washington Botelho author


          It was fixed on version 2.5.1: "The path always was prepend avoiding absolute or different path for each icon."

  25. Cabel

    Any easy way to make the stars smaller? Other than that, what a great plugin, keep up the great work.

    $.fn.raty.defaults.path = '/images';
    $(function() {
      $('.stars').raty({ readOnly: true, score: 1, size: 12 });
    1. Washington Botelho author


      You can set a default size for all intances.
      But the only way is set the size to be possible calculate the right width.

  26. ISEE

    Now, we can get the score from the callbcak function when the raty was initialized, suck as:

      click: function(score, evt) {
        alert('score: ' + score);

    but can we get the score in the other function?

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Get the score when it is initialized is on score option via function() { return 1; }, not on click.
      On click you get the score choosed, like on mouseoverand mouseout

    Hi Washington, can I set my own title for each star, such as 'good' => 'Strongly agree', 'bad' => 'Strongly disagree'?

    Thanks for your great work!

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Darren Teng,

      Yes, you have the options hints to do that.

    2. Jirka Kyncl

      I found it now :)
      you can set parameter hints.


        number: 5,
        score: $(this).data('rate'),
          path: 'js/img',
          readOnly: true,
          noRatedMsg : "Very very bad woman!",
          hints: ["somthing", "bless", "Monitor", 4, "evaluation"]
    3. Jirka Kyncl

      Hi, you can change it in source code. In hints array. I didn't found better solution.

      1. Washington Botelho author

        Jirka Kyncl,

        The better solution is just override the parameter hints.

      Guilherme Duailibe,

      Thank you! (:

    Hi Washington, first of all, great plugin, gj!
    Secondly, is there a way to enlarge the stars even more then 24px as seen here?

    Regards, Daniel.

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Daniel Better,

      Yes, just use your new icon and set the value of it as px on size property.

    Hi Washington,

      Thanks man! (:

    I have a need for multiple ratings on a page. For example, individual ratings for things such as "Price," "Value" and "Quality." Is there a way to specify scoreName for each instance of a rating? Excellent plugin, btw.

    1. Brian

      In the init function, I have changed:

      this.opt = $.extend(true, {}, $.fn.raty.defaults, settings);


      this.opt = $.extend(true, {}, $.fn.raty.defaults, settings, $(this).data());

      This allows me to pass instance variables via the div. Example:

      <div class="my-rating" data-score-name="rating[quality]"></div>

      Perhaps a consideration to add to the master?

      1. Washington Botelho author


        Could you open a issue to create a scoreName callback?
        This way we can pass a function to scoreName and receive it via data or whatever.

      Istvan Szollosi,

      Check if your jQuery was imported before the Raty call.
      Check if you jQuery version has the new method on.

      This problem is about import, about jQuery, not about Raty.

    Is there a way of easily posting the data to a rails application? I have added the call to my application to get the images and the java but every time I post my form my defined attribute doesn't save the the rating to the DB. Heres my code :

    <div id="star" data-score="1">
      <%= :review_rating %>
      score: function() {
        return $(this).attr(':review_rating')

    Forgive me if it seems basic but I know very little about J query and am at beginner level. The :review_rating is my rails attribute that Im trying to commit the score to.

    Please let me know.

    Many Thanks

    1. Washington Botelho author


      The value send by jQuery Raty is a hidden field, not what you put inside the div.
      This content inside the div is ignored, because Raty will override it, then you <%= :review_rating %> is useless.
      By default the hidden field that holds the score is called score, but you can change it if you need.

  34. Brandon

    Awesome plugin! Super easy to use and dropped right into my rails app for a reviews rating system. Thanks!

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Great! (:

  35. Daniel Weller

    Here is a link to a tutorial for ruby on rails. If anyone can get it to fully work let me know! I've been able to only get the update stars to work. (Average rating isn't working)

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Daniel Weller,

      Thanks for the contribution.

    @Roosevelt: luckily you find the download on his github page as well:

    1. Washington Botelho author


      Thanks for the help. (:

  37. Roosevelt P

    Your download link to the plugin is throwing a 404 error.

    1. Washington Botelho author

      Roosevelt P,

      I fixed it. Thanks!

    Is there a way to check and see if a visitor has already voted & if so, then set it to read only?

    Also, I would like to store the rating & number of votes in a mySQL database, how could I do that?

    1. Washington Botelho author


      You can save it into database.
      When the user click on star, it actives the click callback, inside it you can get the score and save it via ajax.

      Or you can just let the user to vote and create a submit button that will send the value keeped into hidden field named score by default.

  39. Tj

    Hi, How to save previous ratings ?? How to download and install this plugin ?

    please help

    1. Washington Botelho author


      To save the last rating, you need to keep it on your database.
      To instal, just import the files e use the code showed on this page.

  40. Lanamaja

    how can i add this on a wordpress page? and/or include into a contact form?
    If i want the plugin to open up different links or display messages depending on the number of stars the user clicked, how could i manage this
    with your plugin?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Washington Botelho author


      You will use the same code. But where put it, I can't help you, because I don't know about wordpress coding.

      To open whatever you want, use the callback click, inside it you can get the score and do your logic.

  41. Amarpreet


    Could you help me with how i can post the rating using ajax.

    1. Washington Botelho author


      You can do it from inside the click callback.
      Get the score value and manipulate it with jQuery.

      Ajax POST reference:
