Extra Credit Description

The following features were implemented to gain an extra credit from Udacity:

  • Added the release date to the Movie class, which is also displayed on the website.
  • Changed the background and text colour to create a dark theme for the website.
  • Added subtle drop shadow to the movie poster images.
