As far a repository for Mac applications, I am not familiar with any. However, there is a program called macports that can be used to install ported apps. It works similar to apt-get: ports install putty, etc.
There is also a sqlite admin of some sorts. I know it comes with MAMP, you can look at that project.
I use textmate for all my text editing, including programming. I think you will find it very useful. It has nice features such as code snippets, where you can type some text and hit tab and it would auto enter in the snippet.
Hope this helps.
