Connect to MySQL via terminal with mycli

Quick note on how to connect to MySQL via terminal.
First option, I went to MySQL docs, found
mysql command can be installed from here: https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/.
The only "problem" with that is it would also install a MySQL Server in my machine, and I just wanted to have the client.
A command line client for MySQL that can do auto-completion and syntax highlighting.
Followed the installation instructions, and.. connected!
Big thanks to the people involved in this excellent cli!
