seems like you are simply just missing to install the OpenZeppelin library in your project. To fix the issue, you can simply run the following command

npm install @openzeppelin/contracts

Try to check whether you can find any @openzeppelin folder under node_modules. If there is, then the import should not fail.

Hope this helps~


Brownie Solution

You can double check that the package is installed using brownie pm list. The output will look something like this:

 ├─OpenZeppelin/[email protected]

If its not installed, you can run the following command in the terminal:

brownie pm install OpenZeppelin/[email protected]
