© Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2018. This paper describes a quantum programming environment, named Q| SI⟩, to support quantum programming using a quantum extension of the while -language. Embedded in the.Net framework, the Q| SI⟩ platform includes a quantum while -language compiler and a suite of tools to simulate quantum computation, optimize quantum circuits, analyze and verify quantum programs. This paper demonstrates Q| SI⟩ in use. Quantum behaviors are simulated on classical platforms with a combination of components and the compilation procedures for different back-ends are described in detail. Q| SI⟩ bridges the gap between quantum hardware and software. As a scalable framework, this platform allows users to code and simulate customized functions, optimize them for a range of quantum circuits, analyze the termination of a quantum program, and verify the program’s correctness (The software of Q| SI⟩ is available at http://www.qcompiler.com.).
