Open Source package manager for Mac OS.

MacPorts is a ports collection and packaging system for Mac OS. Created in 2002 as DarwinPorts, we have an ever-growing collection of ports (currently over 22000), many of which accept multiple configuration variants. MacPorts itself works on both PowerPC and Intel Macs, running OS X 10.4 through macOS 10.12, and many ports support a similar breadth of systems. As one of the primary means of building and installing open source software on OS X, MacPorts is an important interface between Mac OS and the rest of the open source world.
