@to-mos, FWIW I've generally used sudo when working with the port command.

@chrisdilbert I'm glad you found it useful, thanks!

@ellmo sure it's technically possible, but have you seen this done in practice? I don't think this would account for related dependencies. Can you link to some documentation on how to do this?

Once brew is as easy as port activate name @version I'll definitely take a closer look.

I generally use this:

curl http://remoteip.me | pbcopy

@happynoff, MacPorts works, well and reliably. It also supports a lot of functionality which I use that homebrew doesn't support (activating/deactivating multiple versions for testing libraries, for example). Homebrew is great, and I recommend it often for many folks, but I need a better reason than "everyone else is doing it" to make the move myself.

Thanks for the input!

@apsoto, very nice addition, thank you!

@ochko great, thanks!

@rwz, yep, really. MacPorts works, well and reliably.
