Description

I'm developing a plugin and as I'm newbie in programmation, I frequently need to deactivate/reactivate my plugin in the plugin manager to check how works the modifications I've just done. Instead of :
- clicking Plugin menu
- then clicking Install/Manage the plugins
before u reach the list of plugins, I think a shortcut icon on the plugin toolbar would be very helpful (even if I finally assign a key shortcut to it)

Use Plugin Reloader plugin for this. Also you can assign keyboard shortcut for plugin manager via Settings → Configure Shortcuts

As said in my first message, I finally assigned a key shortcut to open this dialog.
But without considering my current needs, why "Install and Manage plugins" action should not have a shortcut icon on a toolbar? Most of the (main) functions in other menus (Vector, Project, Edit ...) have their icon on a toolbar, except "Install and Manage plugins" and "Python console" although they are also important.

Thanks a lot. Awesome! This is a +1000 approved plugin. ADOPTED! I didn't know it but now I think I won't let him of so early, even if I have a bug of displaying (adding twice my plugin icon) but i need to check first if it's not due to my code.

I think this is because "Plugin Manager" is not used so frequently. It is better to save this space for plugin icons or for other native tools.
