However, this package profits from everybody's work so please make a development install and contribute your changes. You can do this via
```
git clone git+https://git.rwth-aachen.de/qutech/qutil.git
cd qutil
python setup.py develop
pip install -e git+https://git.rwth-aachen.de/qutech/qutil.git#egg=qutil
```
This will link the files into your environment instead of copying them. If you are on windows you can use [SourceTree](https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/) which is a nice GUI for git.
This will download the source code (i.e. clone the git repository) into a subdirectory of the `./src` argument and link the files into your environment instead of copying them. If you are on windows you can use [SourceTree](https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/) which is a nice GUI for git.
You can specify the source code directory with the `--src` argument (which needs to be BEFORE `-e`):
```
pip install --src some_directory/my_python_source -e git+https://git.rwth-aachen.de/qutech/qutil.git#egg=qutil
```
If you have already downloaded/cloned the package yourself you can use `python setup.py develop`.
## qutil.plotting
`cycle_plots` helps you cycling through many plots with the arrow keys (there are probably much better functions for this out there)
