If you’ve ever needed a 3th party app like `wget` or anything like it you should probably take a look at homebrew. Its fast and slick and bound to git. It has all the great features we know from `apt` or `macports`. What more could we ask for?
Some of the things ive used it for the last couple of days is installing and playing with [nginx](http://nginx.org/) which is an awesome tiny webserver that has a brilliant json like syntax for vhosts.
