Open AE project and run a JSX script with Python?

I've automated some project versioning with Python, building out folders with AE project templates in them.

I've also written a JSX script that links up the assets in each template based on a JSON file containing footage numbers.

Now I'm trying to link the two up - is there a way to run an AE script from within Python?

I found this code that someone wrote, but when After Effects launches, I get an error: "Unable to execute script. The Scripting plugin is not installed."

I hope this was clear enough - I'm still fairly new to the AE Scripting universe. Any help is appreciated!
