Excellent breakdown.

On DB management, I found really neat tiny alternative to PHPMyAdmin couple of years back called Adminer -

PMA might have changed it since, but we ran into issues when browsing list of tables that had a lot of data and PMA just couldn't calculate the per table stats quick enough to be usable anymore.

Adminer shows tables, then uses AJAX to fetch any additional data.

It's just a single PHP file, with optional custom CSS themes, so very easy to set up.

Ooo that looks good! I wonder if the folks that bundle tools in #DDEV should think about that alternative.
