Tempest List Plugins Command

Tempest List Plugins Command

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/tempest/+spec/list-plugins

Provides a means to list to currently installed Tempest plugins.

Problem description

The Tempest project recently implemented a plugin system to allow external test repositories to be included in Tempest test runs in a seamless fashion. Tempest plugins are essentially Python packages that implement a specific interface and are installed via standard Python tools. However, there is not a straightforward means for knowing which plugins are currently installed.

Proposed change

Providing a means via the tempest command line tooling to list the installed plugins provides a consistent experience to the user. The command tempest plugins list would provide the user with basic information about the installed plugins:

> tempest plugins list
+------------+---------------------------------------------+
| Plugin     | EntryPoint                                  |
+------------+---------------------------------------------+
| HelloWorld | hello_world_tempest_plugin.plugin:MyPlugin  |
| Example2   | example_tempest_plugin.plugin:ExamplePlugin |
+------------+---------------------------------------------+
