An open-source collection of tools for quantum-optics experiments
openqlab provides a collection of useful tools and helpers for the
analysis of lab data in the Nonlinear Quantum Optics Group at the University
Part of the content in this package was written during the PhD theses of Sebastian Steinlechner and Tobias Gehring. It is currently maintained by Sebastian Steinlechner, Christian Darsow-Fromm, Jan Petermann and is looking for more volunteers who would like to contribute.

For a detailed installation instruction see the main documentation.
You will need an up-to-date Python 3 environment to use this package, e.g.
the Anaconda Python distribution will work just fine. Please refer to the
requirements.txt for a list of prerequisites (although these should be
installed automatically, if necessary).
For examples and details on how to use this package, please refer to the documentation.
Use Poetry to manage the development packages. If you are missing a small how-to, just ask and write it. :)
Please write unittests if you add new features.
The structure for the test should represent the structure of the package itself.
Each subpackage should have its own folder prefixed with
test_ and should contain subfolders with the same structure.
.py file (module) should be represented by one folder containing test files that test specific functions of that file.
For very simple classes or modules, the whole module can be tested in one
test_module.py file but may still be contained inside a folder with the same name.
All tests located in
src/test/* are automatically tested when pushing to Gitlab.
To run them manually use:
pre-commit for automatic code formatting before committing.
It is automatically installed with the development packages.
The command to enable the hooks is:
Please write every change that seems significant in the CHANGELOG.md file.
