Alternatively, if you are interested in contributing to the project - you can clone the project from github:

(venv) $ git clone
(venv) $ cd Perceval
(venv) $ pip install . # or pip install -e . for developers


At this point you can directly use Perceval. If you want to learn how to build Linear Optical circuits, manipulate state vector or run quantum algorithms remotely, you should follow the example notebooks. You can start with the Detailed walkthrough tutorial.
