Proposal: Remove "auto-finding" of Plugins in Favor of the Plugin Manager #1616

The plugin manager system, added in buffalo-plugins v1.1.0, added a config/buffalo-plugins.toml file that scopes the plugins Buffalo will see to those listed in the file. There are several advantages to this:

  • Performance - with the plugin list pre-determined we don't have to go scanning the user's system for plugins.
  • Easier for teams - teams can easily see, and install, the plugins for any particular application.

I would like to propose that we remove support for scanning of plugins on a user's system, and, instead, enforce the use of the plugin manager system.

In addition to the advantages listed above with the plugin manager, it will help us to cut down on the number of tickets, such as #1614.

The confusion of having two ways to install, and locate plugins, has caused many of these tickets.
