Installing qiskit (quantum computing framework)
I’m new to Pythonista and am trying to pip install qiskit. Here are the results I’m getting. Does it seem possible to do this with Pythonista?
StaSh v0.7.1 on python 3.6.1
Warning python3. Some commands may not work correctly in python3.
Please help us improving StaSh by reporting bugs on github.
Tip: .stashrc is the StaSh resource file similar to what .bashrc is to Bash

@JavaFXpert qiskit appears to rely at least somewhat on C extensions, which cannot be compiled for pythonista/iOS.
So you likely cannot use qiskit in pythonista, except as a front end to some cloud hosted solution, such as sagecell.
