OPNsense: Installing development versions of plugins

Sometimes I ask to people to test a plugin or new feature. 
There are two ways how to achieve this:

  1. When new version is merged into master, let’s say 0.4, there will be a new pkg when the next OPNsense version is released, like 18.7.3.
    So you go to your console and type:
    # pkg install os-pluginname-devel
  2. If you don’t want to wait for a new release you can grab the latest master code and install it on your own. You have to check the folder where the plugin resides, like /net/ for WireGuard:
    # opnsense-code plugins
    # cd /usr/plugins
    # cd category/pluginname
    # make upgrade
