CelesTrak tracks a number of satellite tracking software packages running on various OSes and even online at:

I’m always looking for reports of more to add to this list. As a Mac user myself, I’d like to see more, too. I’ve worked with Tim DeBenedictis to get SGP4 into his excellent SkySafari software for macOS, iOS, and Android and regularly use the iPhone version to control my Celestron telescope to find GEO sats for imaging.

So, if you have information to share, please be sure to send me an e-mail. Thanks!  - TS

Charles .. I’m a Mac user and programmer and have been running Vallado’s (and others') code for years in various capacities.  I’ll look at your contributions and (if acceptable to the list), communicate suggestions and/or additions etc directly to you, off-list.  If the list prefers to be part of the conversation, that’s fine too.  Speaking personally, and with absolutely no disrespect to the TLE software pioneers, I’ve been occasionally frustrated with the 'DOS-only' collection, so would love to contribute to a new generation!

With the assistance of some people who are far better at coding than I am, I have gotten some of Dave Vallado's code to run on my Macs and I will try to add that over time. I also run some C++ written by a guy named Tim DeBenedictus that propagates TLEs, again as a Unix application, and will try to share some of that.
