Crashes for me upon launch (OS 10.6.2, intel macpro, etc.), but works fine when I download previous version (from http://alittledrop.com/blog/) and update from within the app).

ABANDONWARE: Porticus no longer works properly with Mac OS X 10.7 or MacPorts v2.x. Version 1.8.1 is the last version forever. It will not be updated. It still works fine with Mac OS X 10.6 and MacPorts v1.x. I personally have adjusted to using the CLI instead as there are only three main commands you need to use. However, if you would still like to use a GUI for MacPorts/X11/XQuartz, the best option is the Pallet project available via the MacPorts website. (Don't bother with the awful PortAuthority shareware).

porticus 1.8.1 (which was working some time ago) now says that there are no ports installed, but the directory /opt/local exists and is > 3 GB big... is there something broken? MacOS X 10.6.5

The comments below regarding the application crashing were fixed almost immediately after the developer became aware of the problem: http://alittledrop.com/blog/?p=46 The bigger issue currently is that MacPorts' preferred method of storing information is in an sqlite database, and Porticus only supports the old flat-file storage method.

The missing app icon after mounting the dmg on 10.5.8 was a sign there might be trouble with this version, like people are reporting here, so I didn't try it.

OMG, this is great. Installs all the dependencies and everything. Utterly painless. I would use this even if I did have a brain.

Porticus is a great manager for your macports installation. Being clean and simple it hides great power behind. And it's completely free!

I have the latest MacPorts installed and I can't get Porticus to install a single thing. Using MacPorts from the terminal works fine. I constantly get the following: Error: Error executing universal: Default universal variant only works with ports based on configure Error: Unable to open port: Error evaluating variants. These errors come up no matter what variants I choose. I really want to get to using this app...I just got done setting up a Ubuntu box and Synaptic was really easy. (Not as easy as drag and drop on the Mac, but still pretty good!)
