Slackware repos?

Does Slackware have some sort of repository were I could install programs from there instead of looking for sources online?

Rep: Reputation: 59, and LinuxPackages are probably the best known, there are others.

I personally prefer as you get the slackbuild and source and compile it yourself. Their selection is limited at the moment compared to the other two. usually provides a slackbuild, LinuxPackages only sometimes. Some packages from and Linuxpackages can have unnecessary dependencies.
