JPortsUI is a completed GUI for MacPorts. The workflow is similar to Debian's Synaptic for Aptitude.

Port info includes dependency and dependents tracking, installed files display, and variant picking. It also attempts to retrieve a Port's web domain "favicon" logo graphic. Also included are data exploration tools that can enlighten one as to the current state of FOSS on Mac.

Presently, end users can launch JPortsUI on Mac OS X 10.6 or newer by simply double-clicking the .JAR file. However, it is also possible to build from the openly available source by running a bash script included in the Mercurial checkout. This requires a Java SDK which is typically installed from or No other external libraries are used for easier auditing.

If uninstalling, there is a small icon cache at ~/.zomg/uri-cache/ to delete.
