Getting a app to be run on startup

I'm making a mac app using atom shell that lives in the menubar. I was wondering what my options would be for getting it to run at startup.


  • Does it have to be done manually by the user?

  • Do I need permission from the user to do this?

  • How would I do it programmatically with node / bash?

  • Is there an existing thing within atom shell to do this?

  • Is there an existing module that can do this?
