You can make the plugin available post-install by running:

helm plugin install /usr/lib/helm/plugins/diff

This simply creates a symlink in your HELM_PLUGINS directory pointing to the package installation directory.

You can set

export HELM_PLUGINS="/usr/lib/helm/plugins"

but then you cannot install plugins via the normal way anymore

@ashb last time I checked Helm had no way to add plugins automatically when provided via package. There is neither a predefined path outside of HOME that helm is watching nor can I execute post-install commands with the regular user, that's why, for the time being, there is a helm-diff.install file echoing the last manual step the user has to do in order to use this plugin.

As for the plugins directory I went with the general directory guidelines over at the Arch packaging guidelines#Directories. I remember that I couldn't decide where to put them first, but since a great amount of Helm plugins is written in a compiled language, and therefore not architecture-independant, I decided against /usr/share.

How is this plugin meant to be used? Just installing this package didn't make the plugin available to helm.

Additionally, the "default" helm plugin dir is ~/.local/share/helm/plugins, so /usr/share/helm/plugins would probably be a more fitting path to install this in
