This question already has an answer here:
I am using the Atom editor with the latextools package (a port of the similar one for Sublime) and I can write for example
% !TEX option = -shell-escape
in the begining of my document to make it escape the shell (and use the Minted package).
My question is, where does this command come from? Is it from the latextools package or is it some standard syntax? Is it portable to other IDE?
When building I see this:
latexmk -cd -e -f -pdf -interaction=nonstopmode -synctex=1 -latexoption="-shell-escape" "main.tex"
