docker plugin install

The following example installs vieus/sshfs plugin and sets its DEBUG environment variable to 1. To install, pull the plugin from Docker Hub and prompt the user to accept the list of privileges that the plugin needs, set the plugin's parameters and enable the plugin.

$ docker plugin install vieux/sshfs DEBUG=1

Plugin "vieux/sshfs" is requesting the following privileges:
