Finkers is a blog about Fink, the package manager that brings open source software to Mac OS X/Darwin in a coherent distribution. Fink automates the whole download, patch, compile, install, update, and remove process, making it easy to install and manage open source software.

This is not an official source of information – for that, we refer you to the authoritative documentation section available on Fink’s Web site. On the other hand, authors in this blog have some experience with Fink, so we hope the information posted here is both accurate and useful. It might become outdated as Fink is improved, though.

At the moment, the following people contribute to this blog:

  • monipol: Fink Core
  • hakamadare: Fink packager
  • finkakh: Fink Core

If you want to contribute too, you’re more than welcome! Please drop us a line.

Happy Finking!
