Qiskit Textbook Source Code

:warning: This repo is for pages at**. This is an old version of the textbook and will soon be deprecated. If your issue is about the latest version of the textbook (i.e. any page on**), please make your issue / PR at

This is the repository for the interactive open-source Learn Quantum Computation using Qiskit textbook. The textbook is intended for use as a university quantum algorithms course supplement as well as a guide for self-learners who are interested in learning quantum programming.

The Jupyter notebooks corresponding to each section of the textbook can be found in the content folder. The code in these notebooks will constantly be updated to the latest version of Qiskit.

The notebooks are compiled into html and exported to the website.

Installing the qiskit_textbook Package

The Qiskit Textbook provides some tools and widgets specific to the Textbook. This is not part of Qiskit and is available through the qiskit_textbook package. The quickest way to install this with pip and Git is through the command:

pip install git+

Or, if you prefer using pipenv:
