      Description

      As an administrator, I know the plugin ID and want to know if that plugin is installed.

      When I search for “nectar-rbac” I'm getting 6 plugins instead of one. Moreover, it's not always apparent to tell the plugin ID from the plugin name. 

      It seems plugin dependencies are included in the result, and the plugin I'm looking for `nectar-rbac` is mixed in the bunch.

      When a plugin has a long dependency list, the result becomes hard to use.

      It would be nice to return the plugin ID match at the top, followed by all dependencies, or have a way to exclude dependencies from search.

      Showing the plugin ID in the search result would be very helpful as well.

      Additionally, it could help from a usability PoV to highlight why an entry has been selected by the search.
