Best, ranchers!

I need to come up with a good star rating system that uses decimal values with a range from 0-10 hence incremented with a step size of 0.1
Is this even possible? Most rating system uses a range of 1-5 stars.

What technologies out there do i need to accomplish this? I've seen that the most rating system uses JQuery, a part of javascript I don't
wan't to use in this case also many uses Ajax, which is a whole new science to me. I wonder if someone could point me in the right direction?
Maybe post some good links on tutorials or examples out there or some small code examples that can inspire me.

I am using php and mysql as main back end technologies.

Very kind regards,

Hello Robert,

Sounds like you are starting pretty much from scratch. So before getting into the details of the start rating system, you need to get some basics under your belt first.

You mentioned Ajax -- so I assume that you are using Ajax to get the rating value for a server? Start there.

If you are not using any other framework (Recat, Due, Angular, or son on), I'm not sure I understand the aversion to jQuery -- it'll make everything at least a single of order of magnitude easier.

So, write up some code to get your rating value via Ajax. From there we can help with whatever further action is need to get it to display in the manner you wish.
