The Visual Guide Shows You Step-by-Step How-to Install and Getting-Started with the MacPorts on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.

MacPorts is developed on Mac OS X, though it is designed to be portable so it can work on other Unix-like systems, especially those descended from the BSD.

The Key MacPorts Features:

  • Installs automatically any required support software, known as dependencies, for a given port.
  • Provides for uninstalls and upgrades for installed ports.
  • Confines ported software to a private “sandbox” that keeps it from intermingling with your operating system and its vendor-supplied software to prevent them from becoming corrupted.
  • Allows you to create pre-compiled binary installers of ported applications to quickly install software on remote computers without compiling from source code.

The MacPorts SetUp on Mac OS X Require at least an XCode 5+ Installation from the Apple AppStore.
