is there any good and easy-to-install program for doing that?

I presume I need a wallet and suitable mining program. I'm thinking to have it running on the background of my macbook pro while working. Not thinking of mining heaps of coins, just a little bit on the side with an alternative coin that one day might grow.

Thanks for any suggestions

Most wallets have a built in miner, external Mac miners are rare. The best way to CPU mine on a Mac is to install a Linux
or Windows VM and mine from there. I don't advise mining on a laptop.

Even if you manage to start mining you wont get any profit. Mining on laptop is not recommended and days of mining when cpu was profitable are long gone. You must mine with gpu now
