How to install Plank dock on Solus OS

I don’t know why I cannot live without Plank on my Linux desktop. Today, I am testing the new Solus OS on my Thinkpad T450 laptop. After login to the Solus Desktop, Plank is the first one I am looking for and I am trying to install it on Solus. I was thinking that installing Plank on Solus would take some times since Solus is quite different from other Linux distribution I ever used.

But fortunately, Plank is available via Solus Software Center. So I can install it easily. So here is the final result of my Solus desktop with Plank installed.
