Allow more details to data sets, maybe a better communication between data sets and scripts.

I’ve been using variables in photoshop and also working on writing a few photoshop scripts.

Since I can use data sets to automate a lot of things I was wondering if I could, some how, make scripts work together with it, in order to improve it’s functionality.

For example, to apply the same variable to two different documents, or, also, it would be so helpful if we could insert conditions to data sets, like “if text = 1” then do this, else...

 Datasets are a really powerfull resource at photoshop and most people don't use it, actually not even know that it exists. Besides it, I wish we could have more control over it. Some way yo allow conditions to the automations would be amazing.

You might consider scripting in Excel, if you are using data sets. That can get you a long way and manipulate your data in ways that ExtendScript can't.
