For years, I've been making do with the outdated and ill-supported php-activerecord to do very simple insert and update operations for a tiny script that is for my own use and doesn't need to be a full-blown app with a front end for other users, etc.

Now that I'm using PHP 8, it appears that it's time to find something new to accomplish this very basic CRUD interaction with my MySQL database. A quick search of Packagist reveals that the most popular CRUD packages are all designed for Laravel, CakePHP, or similar.

Is there a PHP CRUD solution out there with a sizeable community of users that works with PHP 8 and doesn't require the use of a web application framework? I would prefer a Composer package, but would accept something else provided it's lightweight and easy to install and use.
