As stated by the earlier answer you can get both mysql server and client libs by running

brew install mysql.

There is also client only installation. To install only client libraries run

brew install mysql-connector-c

In order to run these commands, you need homebrew package manager in your mac. You can install it by running

/usr/bin/ruby -e '$(curl -fsSL'

Using MacPorts you can install the client with:

You also need to select the installed version as your mysql

The server is only installed if you append -server to the package name (e.g. mysql57-server)
