If you are willing to use a latexmk based engine, pdflatexmk, which will also run bibtex (or biber --- automatically chosen) and/or makeindex if necessary to completely typeset your document just place the lines

% !TEX program = pdflatexmk
% !TEX parameter = -shell-escape

at the top of your file.

Good Luck,
