This plugin requires Python version 3.9 and above, as well as PennyLane and Qiskit. Installation of this plugin, as well as all dependencies, can be done using pip:

pip install pennylane-qiskit

To test that the PennyLane-Qiskit plugin is working correctly you can run

make test

in the source folder.


Tests on the IBMQ device can only be run if a ibmqx_token for the IBM Q experience is configured in the PennyLane configuration file, if the token is exported in your environment under the name IBMQX_TOKEN, or if you have previously saved your account credentials using the new IBMProvider

If this is the case, running make test also executes tests on the ibmq device. By default, tests on the ibmq device run with ibmq_qasm_simulator backend. At the time of writing this means that the test are “free”. Please verify that this is also the case for your account.
