• MacOS Catalina v10.15.6
  • IntelliJ Ultimate v2020.1.1
  • Python v3.7
  • eth-brownie v1.14.6
  • Ganache CLI v6.12.2

I created a VENV using my Python 3.7. Following Patricks tutorial, I have installed eth-brownie and Ganache CLI, and now I am trying to create a simple NFT.

Executing (from the command line) the below works fine:

brownie run scripts/simple_collectible/deploy_simple.py --network rinkeby
brownie run scripts/simple_collectible/create_collectible.py --network rinkeby

However, I would like to create my own NFT from scratch. For this, I tried brownie init within a new project, but init always fails with the following error message:

ImportError: cannot import name 'Accounts' from 'brownie.network.account' 

If I create a new Python file and add the following import, I get the same error:

from brownie import SimpleCollectible, accounts, network, config

I've tried everything I can think of - anyone know how to fix this?

i managed to solve this by uninstalling brownie and eth-brownie, and installing it again. Just run:

  • pip uninstall eth-brownie

  • pip uninstall brownie Check if they have uninstalled correctly doing a pip list, and then install them again:

  • pip install brownie

  • pip install eth-brownie

Hope it helps.
