Script runner for Adobe applications right from Atom. Extension also available for VSCode.
Run commands are accessible via
Command Palette. Simply click

supported applications. Click enter to run script inside the selected application.
Extension will open host application first if it's not running, and then execute the script.
Tip: You don't need to have file saved inside Atom. Extension will be able to run code from unsaved documents. Kaboom!

Note: Contribution to support other Adobe applications is highly encouraged.
