ProjectQ is an open-source, hardware-agnostic software framework for quantum computing started at ETH Zurich based upon Python. It was initially created in 2016 and previously supported creating and simulating quantum programs on its own simulation platform as well as IBM’s Qiskit. Most recently with version 0.6 they have added support for IonQ’s and AQT’s ion trap based hardware as well as Amazon Braket for the Rigetti and IonQ gate-based quantum computers as well as Amazon’s SV1 simulator. For more information about ProjectQ and its expanded support for the additional quantum platforms, you can visit main GitHub page here, a post on IonQ’s website titled Get started with ProjectQ on IonQ Hardware located here, and an overview of ProjectQ on its website here.
