FreeBSD The Power to Serve

Searching FreeBSD Ports

Search ports for:

The form above will allow you to search for ports on this site. A completed search will take you to a more complete search page.

However, if you already have the Ports Collection installed on your machine, you may also search by changing to the /usr/ports directory and performing make search name=`string. Instead of by `name you can search by port path (path), port information (info), maintainer (maint), port category (cat), build dependencies (bdeps), run dependencies (rdeps), the project web site (www), or any of these fields (key). Use make quicksearch …​ to only display the port name, port directory, and one line description of the port.

Another option is to visit and either browse the site or subscribe to the lists hosted there.
