If you miss a typical package manager like Apt-Get from Ubuntu then Homebrew in OS X is for you.

When your Mac has Homebrew, you can easily install packages with command line. To install it, open Terminal and paste

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

You will get the following prompt. Hit Enter and follow instructions shown on the screen.
