Microsoft Quantum Development Kit: Q# runtime

Welcome to the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit!

This repository contains the runtime components for the Quantum Development Kit. It consists of the libraries and packages needed to create and simulate quantum applications using Q#.

  • Azure/: Source for client package to create and manage jobs in Azure Quantum.
  • Simulation/: Source for Q# simulation. Includes code generation, full-state and other simulators.
  • xUnit/: Source for the xUnit's Q# test-case discoverer.

New to Quantum?

See the introduction to quantum computing provided with the Quantum Development Kit.

Installing the Quantum Development Kit

If you're looking to use Q# to write quantum applications, please see the instructions on how to get started with using the Quantum Development Kit including the Q# compiler, language server, and development environment extensions.

Please see the installation guide for further information on how to get started using the Quantum Development Kit to develop quantum applications. You may also visit our Quantum repository, which offers a wide variety of samples on how to write quantum based programs.

Building from Source

Build Status

Note that when building from source, this repository is configured so that .NET Core will automatically look at the Quantum Development Kit prerelease feed in addition to any other feeds you may have configured.

Building QIR Runtime isn't enabled by default yet. Please see its readme for details.

Windows

To build on Windows:

  1. Install the pre-reqs:
    • Install CMake
    • Install Visual Studio 2019 (version 16.3 or later). Make sure you install the following workloads:
      • Desktop development with C++
      • From the Individual Components tab in VS Installer add Spectre-mitigated libs that match your C++ build tools version
      • .NET Core 3 cross-platform development
  2. Run bootstrap.ps1 from PowerShell
    • pre-req (in PowerShell):
      Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -Scope CurrentUser
    • The script might install additional tools (a specific compiler, build tools, etc)
    • Then it builds release flavor of the native (C++) full-state simulator and debug flavor of the Simulation solution.
    • You only need to run it once.
  3. Open and build the
    Simulation.sln
    solution in Visual Studio.

The

Simulation.sln
solution does not include the full-state quantum simulator. To change it, you can open the
quantum-simulator.sln
solution created during bootstrap in the
src\Simulation\Native\build
. To integrate your changes with the rest of the simulation components, you must manually build it.

macOS/Linux

To build on other platforms:

  1. Install the pre-reqs:
  2. Run bootstrap.ps1
    • The script might install additional tools (a specific compiler, build tools, etc)
    • Then it builds release flavor of the native (C++) full-state simulator and debug flavor of the Simulation solution.
    • You only need to run it once.
  3. From the command line, run:
    • dotnet build Simulation.sln

The

Simulation.sln
solution does not include the full-state simulator. To integrate any changes with the rest of the simulation components, you need to manually build it using
make
in the
src\Simulation\Native\build
folder.

Testing

All unit tests are part of the

Simulation.sln
solution. To run the tests:
  • From Visual Studio:
    • Open Test Explorer by choosing Test > Windows > Test Explorer from the top menu bar.
    • Run your unit tests by clicking Run All.
  • From the command line, run:
    • dotnet test Simulation.sln
