Hi everybody! I've recently installed ROS Indigo on OS X 10.10.4, exists any way to install packages like in Ubuntu (sudo apt-get install rose-indigo-…)

Or may I always download the package and build my workspace?

There is no way to do this like in Ubuntu with one command.

You'll need to download the packages you want and build them. Either by adding them to your existing workspace or by creating a new one.

Thank you for the answer William, that's the way I was doing it. And I should continue…

Is there a way to automatically resolve dependency between the packages? I mean I can automatically download all in one go?

I have a Mac too, running OSX 10.10. There was a link some days ago in my news feed: regarding installing on OSX. I haven't had any time to try it out yet, so I can't guarantee any magic, but maybe you can give it a go.

jkp, I was asking to install packages in ROS not how to install it in OS X.

By the way, that script was the one that I used to install it (:
