Plugins are installed in Open MCT by providing a plugin installation function to
openmct.install. This function will be invoked on application startup with one parameter — the openmct API object.
A common approach used in the Open MCT codebase is to define a plugin as a function that returns this installation function. This allows configuration to be specified when the plugin is included.
