Deploying plugins without the Marketplace


What is the best way to deploy plugins without going through the Marketplace?
I’m thinking for deploying private plugins or for testing the installation process.


Copy files in plugins/ directory then enable them via the Settings > Plugins (or type in the shell: ./console core:plugin activate PluginNameHere)

Thank you Matt.

I tried it and it works on my installation.

Is this a relatively new feature? I tried it on an older installation, and the ‘core’ namespace wasn’t found.

yes it’s new
