NativeScript Core

tns plugin update

Description

Uninstalls and installs the specified plugin(s) and its dependencies in the local node_modules folder, adds it to the dependencies section in package.json, and prepares the plugin(s) for all installed platforms. If you have not configured any platforms for the project, the NativeScript CLI will prepare the plugin(s) when you add a platform.
