Python client for Q#, a domain-specific quantum programming language

Project description

Q# Interoperability for Python

The qsharp-core package for Python provides interoperability with the Quantum Development Kit and with the Q# language, making it easy to simulate Q# operations and functions from within Python.

For details on how to get started with Python and Q#, please see the Getting Started with Python guide.

Installing with Anaconda

If you use Anaconda or Miniconda, installing the qsharp package will automatically include all dependencies:

conda install -c quantum-engineering qsharp

Installing from Source

If you'd like to contribute to or experiment with the Python interoperability feature, it may be useful to install from source rather than from the qsharp-core package on the Python Package Index (PyPI). To do so, make sure that you are in the Python directory, and run setup.py with the install argument:

cd iqsharp/src/Python/
python setup.py install

Building the qsharp Package

The Python interoperability feature uses a standard setuptools-based packaging strategy. To build a platform-independent wheel, run the setup script with bdist_wheel instead:

cd iqsharp/src/Python/
python setup.py bdist_wheel

By default, this will create a qsharp-core wheel in dist/ with the version number set to 0.0.0.1. To provide a more useful version number, set the PYTHON_VERSION environment variable before running setup.py.
