qiskit.qobj.QasmQobj.to_dict

QasmQobj.to_dict()[source]

Return a dictionary format representation of the QASM Qobj.

Note this dict is not in the json wire format expected by IBMQ and qobj specification because complex numbers are still of type complex. Also this may contain native numpy arrays. When serializing this output for use with IBMQ you can leverage a json encoder that converts these as expected. For example:

import json
import numpy

class QobjEncoder(json.JSONEncoder):
    def default(self, obj):
        if isinstance(obj, numpy.ndarray):
            return obj.tolist()
        if isinstance(obj, complex):
            return (obj.real, obj.imag)
        return json.JSONEncoder.default(self, obj)

json.dumps(qobj.to_dict(), cls=QobjEncoder)
Returns

A dictionary representation of the QasmQobj object

Return type
