byobu on Mac w/ MacPorts #

random($foo) is the personal site of Leonard Lin, where I collect shiny things and publish original writing and code. more »

byobu has a Homebrew package, but sadly, there’s no MacPorts port. Luckily, byobu is Mac friendly, and only requires a few dependencies (gleaned from an old portfile and crosschecked w/ the homebrew formula):

port install python27 gettext libnewt coreutils gsed

Then it’s just a matter of grabbing the latest tarball, and running a configure && make && make install.
