DQCsim, short for Delft Quantum & Classical simulator, is a framework that can be used to tie components of quantum computer simulators together in a standardized yet flexible, developer-friendly, and reproducible way. Click here for more information!
If you're a user or a plugin developer (Python, C, or C++), the recommended way to install DQCsim is through Python's package manager:
sudo pip3 install dqcsim
This will install just the DQCsim core files and so-called "null" plugins for
testing. So you'll also want to install plugins in addition. This is currently
TODO, because there are no supported plugins yet. However, the current idea is
that these will also be distributed through pip, with a dependency on
dqcsim. For instance, you should be able to install
dqcsim-qx through pip
to get the QX simulator with appropriate DQCsim bindings.

TODO: until we (jvanstraten and mbrobbel) get a first release going, contributing is probably more trouble than it's worth.

For Rust code this is simple: always apply
cargo format and
cargo clippy -Dwarnings before committing. The CI will fail if your code does
not comply. For C, C++, and Python, there isn't really a specific code style
defined right now; please just try to mimic the existing code.
Any tab character that isn't required by the language (looking at you, Make) will be shot on sight.
Within the root directory of the repository resides a Cargo workspace, a Python
setuptools), and a CMake buildsystem. Since we're using pip for distribution,
setup.py is the master: running
python3 setup.py build will chain to Cargo to build the Rust modules before building the Python-specific things. The C/C++ API is currently header-only, so it doesn't need to do anything with CMake. Running
python3 setup.py bdist_wheel after the build will produce a wheel file in
target/python/dist, which you can then install into a Python venv using pip; just replace
dqcsim in the install notes above with the wheel file.
Testing is done by the buildsystem associated with the language:
cargo testwill run the core test suite for DQCsim and its command-line interface.
- TODO will run the C/C++ API tests.
python3 setup.py testwill run the Python API test suite.
TODO (read the drone/travis build instructions)
