Customize Plugin Manager
Live preview in the customizer allows you to see what plugins do to your site instantly. This experimental plugin bring the ability to activate and deactivate plugins from within the customizer. Plugin installation and updates could be a potential future phase depending on the success of this experiment.
Unfortunately, the customizer preview cannot currently reflect changes to the active plugins list. Additionally, plugins are not sandboxed – broken plugins activated from here could break your site. Use this plugin with caution. However, changes are not published to your live site until you “Save and Publish,”
