like to have different workspaces for my needs, or work to do in PS. part of the different work is that i use different (big) actions, to have all of them in one action panel is a crime. A example: i work with the action process from Guy Gowan, beside that like also to work with a action script like watercolors (graphicriver-14830388-watercolor-photoshop-action). Both a huge action scripts, when a have the possibility to include a specific action script in a workspace... It will be awesome :-)

As Configurator is a thing of the past I think you may want to look into creating html5 Panels for Photoshop. 

And are you really talking about Actions and Scripts?

Some versions ago one could create Flash Panels for use inside Photoshop (and some other Adobe applications); then Flash was abandoned and html5 was embraced and nowadays one can create custom html5 Panels for Photoshop. 
So yo could create Panels that refer to certain Actions, Tools, Menu items, ... and use the corresponding Panels in your various Workspaces.

Sadly I have to admit I found the issue difficult; there are free resources available (though Extension Builder may not be current anymore), but I think Davide Barranca’s book might be worth a look.

Thanks again Christoph!

Your last two links are usefull, but costs me -at least- $149,00. Will look into it, and have to consider if the amount ($149,00), time and effort my wish worth it...

Back to my first words, looks to me that as a part of an workspace you wold like also have more that one version of the action panel. Just to do your different work in different workspaces... Looks to me that Adobe has to pick it up and put it on the backlog with a lot of points...

The book is not what I would call cheap either. 
If you want to pursue creating html5 Panels for Adobe applications you may want to look around for free resources some more, maybe ask for advice on this Forum:
