Atom editor for javascript. Nightmares trying to get it to work!

I'm trying to get javascript to run in Atom Editor,
bu there is no compile or run button / menu Item

I have the following packages installed... (83 !) of them.
script 3.18.1
script-runner 2.3.1

dozens of others to get this one working
Should there be a compile/run menu item / button?

It's an editor and not a complete developement tools.
Just use your command line to compile using tools like : npm, gulp, grunt, ....

Javascript doesn't usually need to compile unless you're using typescript, and it doesn't usually need to be told to run (that's done by whatever app is calling the javascript functions). What are you trying to achieve? Can you provide a little more detail?
