A quick question about using jupyter notebook inside VSCode. I followed the instructions in the documentation to launch a proper kedro notebook that opens in a tab in my browser. In that scenario, the correct kernel is available and I can access the session/context etc. as directed. However, when I open the same notebook inside VSCode, the kedro kernel isn't available, only the python environment I created for my project. Is it frowned upon to open notebooks inside VSCode? should I just stick to the method outlined in the instructions? I'd prefer to open the notebook inside VSCode so I don't have to tab between it and my browser. Any instructions to get this working is greatly appreciated. thanks kindly,

in the notebook in vscode just add the following lines
Copy code
%load_ext kedro.ipython
%reload_kedro <project_root>
and simply use your usual kernel / .venv… (I had actually asked the same question =>
