That thread is not really applicable. They ask if a shell command can be run within javascript. I'm asking if the other way around is possible. So I could execute a javascript in the context of Photoshop from a terminal/shell/cli.

 

The thing is, I believe that my ask is so basic and fundamental that I can't fathom how come this has not been covered anywhere. There's literrally no definite answer to such simple thing like this.

It feels like it would open up a possibility to go against the EULA of Photoshop, so I think it cannot be done.

 

After playing around a bit: The cli command is "start photoshop"

I didn't get that command to accept any parameters.
