I've got two Macs, an iMac and a Macbook Pro. I do web development work on both, my data is synced with a local cloud solution. But how do I keep my Macports installations in sync? At the moment I try two manually install the very same packages, but with all the port variants I'd hope for a more sophisticated solution.


You could pipe the output of port echo active to a file on one machine, sync the output to the other machine, and run port install for each line.

That would be just the most naive solution, mainly not handling "merge conflicts".
