I started this project back in February of last year(!) and was pulled off of it for over half of 2019, so after an entirely too long dev cycle, I am pretty stoked to let you guys know about this. You can finally visit the v5 beta by going here: https://v5.themoviedb.org/
If I was to zero in on what makes v5 so much better than v4, it's that it's all about density and consistency. I spent a lot of time making things consistent across all media types and pages. Everything finally feels like it's a lot more at home and where it belongs. This is also a design that can scale with some of the new data we plan to start incorporating over the next few years.
While it is mostly feature complete, I am aware of a few lingering issues. They are as follows:
New homepage isn’t done yet
Collections cannot be edited, not 100% there design wise yet
Account pages have some display and functionality issues
Content pages (like the API docs, etc...) haven't been updated yet
- Lists need some love, they haven't been updated yet
- The "watch now" bar on Mobile is going to get tweaked, but it is available
If you see something that is clearly wrong, by all means feel free to mention it below. I need more eyes on this, so just use it as you see fit and I'll be spending the next few weeks wrapping everything up.
My goal is to have this launched in production sometime in the next few weeks.
Thanks as always!
Update on March 27: v5 is now live on production!! This has been the longest and hardest thing I have ever pulled off in the past 11 years building TMDb. Of course there's still work to be done, and we're not stopping here but I'm taking a breather for the weekend. Hope everyone is staying safe out there, feel free to reply to this thread with issues if they crop up. Thanks as always.
