CSS for star ratings via FontAwesome

0 votes

I've experimented with several alternative CSS star rating schemes, and I'm currently trying to build the following using FontAwesome rather than a sprite. Idealistically, I'd like to be able to add half stars, however the sample below falls short in this regard. So far, I've only tried this. The half or partial star isn't functioning properly in this case. Any advice would be highly appreciated.

.score {
  display: block;
  font-size: 16px;
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
}

.score-wrap {
  display: inline-block;
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  height: 19px;
}

.score .stars-active {
  color: #EEBD01;
  position: relative;
  z-index: 10;
  display: inline-block;
}

.score .stars-inactive {
  color: grey;
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  -webkit-text-stroke: initial;
  overflow: hidden;
}
<link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.css" rel="stylesheet" />

<span class="score">
    <div class="score-wrap">

FontAwesome has added half stars to their arsenal for future reference. Include a link href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel=" stylesheet "> in the head> section of your page and the following will provide the basic structure.

    <span class="score">
<div class="score-wrap">
    <span class="stars-active" style="width:88%">
        <i class="fa fa-star" aria-hidden="true"></i>
        <i class="fa fa-star" aria-hidden="true"></i>
        <i class="fa fa-star" aria-hidden="true"></i>
        <i class="fa fa-star" aria-hidden="true"></i>
        <i class="fa fa-star-half" aria-hidden="true"></i>
    </span>
</span>
</div>

If you want the stars to be larger, change fa fa-star to fa fa-star 3x, where 3x represents the size, thus 3x, 4x, 5x, and so on. Use fa-star-o if you want a different style of star. If you want to alter the color, you can either edit it using CSS or add the colour to the class, for example, class="fa-star-o bg-light."
