rpk plugin install

Install an rpk plugin.

An rpk plugin must be saved in $HOME/.local/bin or in a directory that is in your $PATH. By default, this command installs plugins to $HOME/.local/bin. This can be overridden by specifying the --dir flag.

If --dir is not present, rpk will create $HOME/.local/bin if it does not exist.
