Software for developing quantum computing programs
Qiskit is an open-source SDK for working with quantum computers at the level of circuits, algorithms, and application modules.
Qiskit is made up of elements that work together to enable quantum computing. This is a simple meta-package to install the elements of Qiskit altogether.
The best way of installing
qiskit is by using
$ pip install qiskit
See install Qiskit for detailed instructions, how to use virtual environments, and build from source standalone versions of the individual Qiskit elements and components.
The four elements of Qiskit are the essential parts that give Qiskit its power
and if you want to run your experiments on real systems you need the 5th element
