Hey, folks! 😺 We're developing costof.live to see the cost of living data in a more meaningful way and to contribute easily. While examining many sources in the development process, we tried to decide which of the data we obtained was more important. The two biggest problems we had while researching the cost of living data in line with our own needs were; to continue to look at the pages with all these data and to ensure the accuracy of the figures. After we realized the results, we decided to make a fresh cost of living website which has community-powered insights. And, the feedbacks are welcome!

@mucahittutuncu Really cool info! Wish I had this before I moved to San Francisco, moving here and seeing my expenses double overnight was not a good surprise. Sidenote: here's a couple of pointers to make the site even better :) - https://app.usebubbles.com/91f29...

Hello @angrigoryan__ 👋 Yes, we collected the initial city information from Wikipedia and Numbeo.

Excellent product, I always wondered why there was nothing else but Numbeo for this purpose as Numbeo seems like it never develops any new features and looks like a site built in the early 2000's. Feature request: Would be cool to have some indexes like 'best purchasing power' ranked in a table. Dream request: Allow me to rank cities based on salary and purchasing power and tailoring results to the users title (PM, Engineer).

@luikohl Thanks! I can say that your feature request is on the way :) Stay tuned! Also, the "dream request" is a great idea we'll add to the roadmap.

What does the orange and green colored dots mean?

@berkan_unal I think when cost of living > average salary it's orange (kinda bad). otherwise it's green(you can make savings).

Just a big kids with cool projects.
That's awesome. Congrats on launching. Small bug : When comparing two cities, the highest number is in red and the lowest is in green. Except some shouldn't be this way (per example the highest salary should be in green and not in red - Saw this on Amsterdam vs Copenhague). Other than that. Love it.

@mucahittutuncu Congrats on the launch. Love the product! Curious to know what perks do the users get once they sign up...Few minor suggestions: 1. Once the user clicks/taps on a city, the "Restaurants" expenses breakdown is shown by default. Instead, it'd be helpful to see the "Rent per month" breakdown since that's the lions share of the cost of living and most users might like to see that by default. While at it, would be great to just to reorder the expense breakdown sections from high to low. 2. "Cost of living in San Francisco, CA, United States is seems affordable" - Some grammar nazis may not be happy with the cameo of 'is' in it :) 3. Agree with few others about the colored dots being a bit misleading because it's an indicator of the cost of living relative to the salary. But what's shown to the the left of dot is just the absolute cost of living $ (not pricing in any salary).

Hey @sekhar_chandra, thanks! We're working on providing perks to users to become a contributor. Right now, their only motivation is self-motivation :) It's a bit chicken-egg problem but that's the fun part of the making products. Lastly, these are nice feedbacks, should be fixed soon :) Thanks again!
