Python port of Anders and Briegel' s method for fast simulation of Clifford circuits.
You can read the full documentation here. You can also build it locally using Sphinx with
To install Sphinx on OSX, use
pip install sphinx. If after doing so
make doc still does not work, some OSX users may also need to install
sphinxcontrib-napoleon by running
pip install sphinxcontrib-napoleon.
It's easiest to install with
$ pip install --user abp==0.6.0
Or install from source: clone and install in
$ git clone https://github.com/peteshadbolt/abp.git $ cd abp $ python setup.py develop --user $ python setup.py develop --user --prefix= # Might be required on OSX
If installed from source, check that abp is running your local Python install by ensuring that the first line of
abp/bin/abpserver matches your local python install (which can be found using
which python). If not, you will need to change it to your local python path.
Some OSX users may find they need additional modifications to their path to execute
abpserver from the command line. To add
abpserver to your path, you must first find where it is installed, e.g. by typing:
$ find / -iname "abpserver"
A path to a Python library, such as
/Users/username/Library/Python/2.7/bin/abpserver, should appear (if installed from source, this is not
path/to/repo/abp/bin/abpserver). To add this to your path permanently, open
~/.bash_profile, add the path, e.g.
export PATH="$HOME/Library/Python/2.7/bin:$PATH" and restart your shell. If this has worked, typing
which abpserver will display the desired path.
