Add plugin to Favorites directly from plugin archive page

Description

I think it would be great to be able to add a plugin to favorites from the plugin grid page on the repository, rather than having to click into each individual plugin page first.

Hey @robey, thank you for your suggestion!

When the Plugin Directory was redesigned last, a lot of emphasis was put on decluttering the user interface. At the time, the old directory had received a lot of improvements and additions that made it harder to find the plugin you were looking for, partially because of UI distractions.

While I agree, adding a favorite heart to archive views would make it easier to favorite multiple plugins, I assume that is also something that probably not very many people do very often? Let's try and keep the UI simpler and surface these types of features on the plugin details screen.
