Install with git

Installing the QuTIpy package directly from the official git repository (from source).
If you’d like to be able to update your QuTIpy code occasionally with the latest bug fixes and improvements, follow these instructions:

Manual Installation

  1. 1.
    Make sure that you have Git installed and that you can run its commands from a shell. (Enter git help at a shell prompt to test this.)
  2. 2.
    Check out QuTIpy’s main development branch like so:
    $ git clone
    This will create a directory QuTIpy in your current directory.
  3. 3.
    Make sure that the Python interpreter can load QuTIpy’s code. The most convenient way to do this is to use a virtual environment and pip. The contributing tutorial walks through how to create a virtual environment.
  4. 4.
    After setting up and activating the virtual environment, run the following command:
    $ python -m pip install -e QuTIpy/
    This will make QuTIpy’s code importable. In other words, you’re all set!

PIP Installation

  1. 1.
    Install the package directly from GitHub using pip, like so:
$ python -m pip install

Check if the installation is successfull :

Run the shell command ,
$ echo "import qutipy; print(qutipy.version);" | python
This should output the version of qutipy installed in your system like this ,
$ 0.1.0
When you want to update your copy of the QuTIpy source code, run the command git pull from within the QuTIpy directory. When you do this, Git will download any changes.
