    sudo apt-get install equivalent for OSX

    Im pretty much familiar with installing app packages in Ubuntu using sudo apt-get install.
    Is there anything similar for a Mac Book Pro ? Ubuntu has a single repo source of all the packages.
    What about Mac / OSX ? Does Apple have such a thing like iphone apps repository ?

    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"

    For open source software, you could look into DarwinPorts or MacPorts systems. These are akin to the FreeBSD Ports system (or Gentoo's Portage, which is inspired by FreeBSD Ports). They make it easy to download and install source code-based packages. I've used DarwinPorts to install a couple of packages, but I'm far from an expert on these systems, so I don't know their precise limits.
