I’ve been told by an old student of mine that her current employer has k8s running pods which can spawn VS Code for them to use, from JupyterLab. My Google-fu is failing me, and I can’t find anyone talking about their implementation of this.
Has anyone seen this done? I’ve got a lovely little z2jh cluster running for my students, with Docker images that spawn RStudio directly; or spawn JupyterLab so students can choose to start RStudio, or can choose other options; or a third image that spawns Jupyter Notebook with the Sage kernel, for mathematical software users.
It would be great to have the second one, that spawns into the Lab interface, have additional applications available on the launch pane, including (but especially) VS Code, for those who really would like that IDE.
Anyone know of a reference to how someone pulled this off?
