Rating and voting features are one of the ways to encourage user interaction with the website. We vote for something we like and we think it deserve a little compliment. Also, based on the rating, we able to know everyone's favourite item and it helps us to make decisions as well.

This time, I have gathered a few of javascript rating plugins that are built with jQuery, Mootool or prototype framework and a few of tutorials if you want to know how it works or implement it by yourself.

  • jQuery Start Rating | Demo

    The Star Rating Plugin is a plugin for the jQuery Javascript library that creates a non-obstrusive star rating control based on a set of radio input boxes.
  • Prototype Starbox | Demo

    Starbox allows you to easily create all kinds of rating boxes using just one PNG image. The library is build on top of the Prototype javascript framework.
  • Prototype Livepipe Control.Rating | Demo

    Control.Rating attaches to any div, span or table cell on your page in one line of code to create a fully customizable CSS based ratings widget.
  • Mootool Rabid Rating | Demo

    RabidRatings is a simple but eye-caching ratings system which allows users to your website to rate virtually anything.
