mySQL cli is a fast and nice tool to manage your DBs. I suppose we'll never get rid of it because of it's extreme usefulness.
I bet you already know what it means to "slip your hands in the jam" (just an italianism, not to be taken too seriously). By that, I mean darn long query command searches to learn the commands' syntax, a lot of copy-pasting until you found that right combination that "simply works™" for your specific case.
Hopefully, some clever devs came to our help and invented GUIs (well, sort-of), such as phpMyAdmin, (and others too - just search!).
These GUIs allow poor sysadmins, pwrusrs and alike an easier DB administration (especially when it comes to "frustration-free" INSERT queries).
Basically, it's just a 200k, single-file phpMyAdmin alternative. You simply chuck it in your "DB-powered-website", toggle some switches and off you go - just don't mess-up your DB!
The author of this tool is this European Czech guy called Jakub Vrána, who does seem to be knowing what he's up to.
