Installing a Plugin

To install a plugin, you'll need to know either the repo of the plugin, or the name of the plugin (if it's published).

aka plugins:install [REPO_OR_NAME]

For example,

aka plugins:install

Would install the postgres plugin from Akkeris' repo, you could also run:

aka plugins:install pg

Which would also install the same plugin using its published name.

List Plugins

This allows you to browse plugins which have been published.

aka plugins
:: pg
   Id: 8f2bd0cf-cdbe-4f92-a59f-57416f6de69b
   Description: A postgresql plugin to help manage alamo and appkit databases

:: securekey
   Id: b0d6a5ce-2cb2-4f3f-a5be-3a6fde4392a6
   Description: Rotate secure keys from the command line

Remove a Plugin

aka plugins:uninstall pg

Publishing and Revising a Plugin

Once a plugin is created, publishing it is a great way to let other users discover it.

aka plugins:publish mypluginname -d "Description of functionality, one sentence long." -r -o "Your Name" -e ""

To update the published plugin use the revise command.

aka plugins:revise mypluginname -d "Description of functionality, one sentence long." -o "Your Name" -e ""

While the repo may be updatable via a revise command it will not change for users who have installed the plugin unless they uninstall and re-install it.

Unpublishing a Plugin

To remove a published plugin from the registry, run aka unpublish <name>. This will not remove the plugin for any users who have installed it.
