More often than not I still find myself (temporarily) installing some Apache distribution bundle with phpMyAdmin because it is the fastest way to create and manage my application databases.
I have not yet come across a decent/complete replacement for phpMyAdmin yet though. Did you?

MySQL Workbench is pretty great, but if you want PHPMyAdmin you do not need to pollute your local env with Apache and PHP if you use docker. All the dependencies will be inside the container, which can be removed or upgraded with one command.
More on hub.docker.com/r/phpmyadmin/phpmya...
After the install you can start/close it as needed
On Windows I tend to use SQLYog Community Edition which provides a pretty good GUI for managing MySQL databases.
I'm interested to hear what GUI tools people use on Linux systems, because I'm yet to find one I like as much as SQLYog or HeidiSQL.
When i worked on a Linux box I tried really hard to find a HeidiSQL clone.
The closest thing i found was: dbeaver.io/
On Mac I use SequelPro
How about MySQL Workbench?
