What is the proper way for accessing apm (Atom package manager) for flatpakked Atom?

I couldn't find the answer searching by DDG or Google. Slightly related question.

I can run Atom itself via:

flatpak run io.atom.Atom

One way I can run apm is via:


But this hardly seems normal. Is there some more reasonable/nice/clean/proper way to do this? Some things that don't work:

flatpak run io.atom.Atom.apm
flatpak run io.atom.Apm
flatpak run io.atom.Atom --apm

The last path exists but tells me:

/var/lib/flatpak/app/io.atom.Atom/current/active/files/bin/apm: 5: exec: /app/bin/apm-real: not found

1 Answer 1

flatpak run --command=apm io.atom.Atom

or more specifically:

flatpak run --command=apm io.atom.Atom install packagename1 packagename2

The answer was in these two (1, 2) closed issues on io.atom.Atom github page.
