Trying Macports

I was aware of macports for quite some time (since I moved to macOS about 8 years ago) But most of the tools seem to be suggesting brew install, so I didn’t give macports a second thought.

8 years later, my MBP is old, and soon will not be supported by Apple and brew

While I upgraded to macOS monterey, this is going to be last version supported on this hardware.

Someone on mastodon suggested macports are supported better on older versions of macOS

So today I decided to give it a try.

I still have brew packages (everything so far) and I’ll be using macports side-by-side.

First impressions:

Other than these, it is too early to have any other impressions 😄

(The first package I installed in nushell - something else to try out)
