Hey, do we always need to install plugin using:
Copy code
ws.installPlugin
or can it be done in an other way like when iam installing the node modules. I cant remember I installed any plugins locally but I got a bounch. Thanks :)

When doing a
pulumi up
from the CLI, pulumi crawls your package.json looking for pulumi packages that require plugins. When you run an inline automation api program, there is no guarantee that there is a package.json in a standard location so we can't detect plugins automatically.
