Adminer is way simpler indeed, but because it removes many the functionalities and settings, but is more versatile.
Anyway I use and recommend using docker for development environments, for many obvious reasons.
docker run --name myadmin -d -e PMA_HOST=dbhost -p 8080:80 phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin
docker run --link some_database:db -p 8080:8080 adminer
Thanks. I am using docker and Adminer.
