Totally relate with the hustle of setting up the dev environment. I am often struggling so much in between projects with different stacks and I feel like my laptop is becoming just a bucket of un-upgraded libraries and frameworks. Now I am still trying to find the best ways to manage them properly (and not super clutter my laptop), but other than version managers, some other tricks and cloud IDEs I didn’t come so far :(

Honestly I think the most portable solution is setting up a Dockerfile for each project but that depends how much you want to mess around with the set up and debugging.

I'm still of the mind that all new projects should come some sort of container for essentially 1 line deploy but so far haven't found the right internal project to try that on.
