My open source project BlackBox is now available in the MacPorts collection. If you use MacPorts, simply type "sudo port install vcs_blackbox". There was already a package called "blackbox" so I had to call it something else.

I'm looking for volunteers to maintain packages for Brew, Debian, and other package formats. If you are looking to learn how to make packages, this is a good starter project and will help people keep their files secure. Interested? Contact me by email open an issue in Github.
