“Just worry about what to see. We take care of the rest”
Since I announced the pause for the development of CinelarTV, I have thought, researched and tested several ways to design an application as complete and modern as possible.
That is why today I come to announce that CinelarTV continues its development, therefore I will continue to show the progress of the project
A new design
During this time I learned a lot about CSS, and thanks to the WebViewer component and its ability to load HTML I was able to create better designs and implement several animations
There will be a site where design suggestions will be accepted following the guidelines and the color palette very soon
This was my biggest design challenge within an application.
My goal is to create a good user experience, from the opening of the application to the moment of reproduction.
That is why CinelarTV Player does not have the same design while being paused or playing
I decided to do something simple and that I have not seen in another application (Inspired in some way by SmartTV designs)
CinelarTV Player would not be possible without the HLSPlayer extension by @Said-Dev
For the design of the main screen I wanted to do something simple but with a touch of elegance
With a simple 4-button navigation bar: Browse, Search, My Collection and Account
A simple Slideshow and RecyclerViews that are created dynamically
Dynamic RecyclerViews use Glide to load images from the network asynchronously and cache them
Also have a subtle overlay, rounded corners and Custom Fonts (Visible only in APK)
The RecyclerView extension has been made by @salazar6cristopher for CinelarTV, and i use Dynamic Vertical Arrangements created with the Dynamic Components extension by @yusufcihan to initialize RecyclerViews.
The highlight is what usually catches the attention of users, so I have implemented a Slideshow that will show the most prominent content in the application
Every application should authenticate its users, CinelarTV uses its own login using the Laravel API of our custom backend
I know you have noticed and it is not a mistake
For security reasons the registration can only be done from the corresponding website.
For now I can not show more progress, but do not worry, very soon you can see them
