As a web developer I’m always looking into the latest jQuery plugins and JavaScript libraries. Open source development offers an exceptional world for newcomers and professionals who just need a quick solution.

This post includes many free JS plugins for building a user rating interface. Most websites fall back to the 1-5 star rating but you might customize this to include more stars, less stars, or even build a simpler system. YouTube has even switched to a thumbs up/down rating system which seems to work great.

jRating is a very flexible jQuery plugin for quickly creating an Ajaxed star rating system.

It is possible to configure every detail from" the number of the stars" to "if the stars can represent decimals or not".


There is also an option to display small or big stars and images can be changed with any other file easily.

Although the plugin can be used with any scripting language, a PHP file that handles the requests is already included in the download package.
