This file and directory exists purely for backwards compatibility of the following: %load_ext kedro.extras.extensions.ipython from kedro.extras.extensions.ipython import reload_kedro

Any modifications to the IPython extension should now be made in kedro/ipython/. The Kedro IPython extension should always be loaded as %load_ext kedro.ipython. Line magics such as reload_kedro should always be called as line magics rather than importing the underlying Python functions.
