Add project folder from terminal on existing Atom window

I am wondering if there is a way to add a project folder from the terminal on an existing Atom window.

I normally use atom . but that open the folder on Atom, on a new window.

By running atom --help, it appears as though you could run atom --add . and it’ll add your current directory as a project folder in your last used atom window.

That works. atom --help is a great tip as well, thank you!
