Adding Vagrant Plugins
While Vagrant offers plenty of features out of the box, it's not uncommon to come across a Vagrantfile that requires some kind of additional plugin to run properly. Vagrant plugins can be managed via the `vagrant plugin` command, and are generally single-command installs. In this hands-on lab, we will add, remove, and otherwise manage various plugins to ensure we have the proper setup to support our Vagrantfile.
