dokku: Install plugin.
$ dokku plugin:install ${full_repo_url}
try on your machine

This command is used to install a Dokku plugin from a specific repository URL.

Here is an explanation of each part of the command:

  • "dokku" refers to the command-line utility or CLI (Command Line Interface) called "Dokku" that is used for deploying and managing applications on a server.
  • "plugin:install" specifies that we want to install a Dokku plugin.
  • "${full_repo_url}" is a placeholder indicating that the actual repository URL should be provided here. The repository URL is the location where the Dokku plugin code is hosted. The "${...}" syntax is often used in command-line interfaces to represent variables or placeholders that need to be replaced with actual values when the command is executed.

When you execute this command by replacing "${full_repo_url}" with the actual repository URL, Dokku will download and install the plugin from that specific repository. This allows you to extend the functionality of Dokku by adding new plugins that offer additional features or capabilities.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
