React Icons that provides thousands of free Open Source icons that you can use in your project. Ratings provide insight into others' opinions and experiences and can allow the user to submit a rating of their feedback. A rating indicated by stars (usually 1–5), the highest number of stars indicating the best quality, the highest amount, etc. The star rating is about energy efficiency, which is how efficient a model is relative to other models of the same range. 

Here are the points that we will need for the output: 

  • Render five stars. 
  • When a user hovers over a star, fill that star. 
  • When a star is filled with a mouse, ensure that all the stars before it is also filled. 
  • If a filled star is clicked on again, it becomes empty. 


  • Displaying stars with the dynamic count. 
  • Users can choose a rating. 
  • Activate a read-only method for displaying ratings of other users without editing the star component. 
  • Change the label for the widget. 
  • Change the colors of the start for empty and filled states. 
  • Extend set and hover events. 
  • Set the size of the stars. 

Here is an example of how to create react star rating component:
