How to make a Star Rating using Dataview

Things I have tried

What I’m trying to do

In this video, the guy shows book ratings using stars. Is this some special markdown code or just pasting some ascii symbol? if so, do you paste for example 4 filled stars and 1 unfilled star for a 4/5 rating? if so, what’s a quick way to do this? via alfred snippets or similar?

It’s no special markdown code or “magic” things, just symbols:
★☆☆☆☆
★★☆☆☆
★★★☆☆
★★★★☆
★★★★★
You can create a template for each rating and assign a hotkey for each one (e.g.: ★★★☆☆ => ⌘+3). Next time you want to evaluate something with 3 stars you just need to use the defined hotkey.
