Qiskit is an open-source framework for working with noisy quantum computers at the level of pulses, circuits, and algorithms.

Qiskit is made up elements that each work together to enable quantum computing. This is a simple meta-package to install the elements of Qiskit altogether.

Installation

The best way of installing qiskit is using pip:

$ 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.

Qiskit Elements

The four elements of Qiskit are the essential parts that give Qiskit its power
