Rating

A LemonadeJS {self} property can be bound to an HTML DOM element attribute. In this sense, the HTML elements will automatically update when a property value changes.

Examples

A basic star rating implementation

    self.click = function(s) {
        // If the self of the clicked item is not selected reset the null
        if (! s.selected) {
            current = null;
        }

        let index = self.stars.indexOf(s);
        // Go through all stars and define select or non selected
        for (let i = 0; i < self.stars.length; i++) {
            // What is the value
            let value = (i <= index && s !== current) ? 1 : 0;
