It is essential to know all many techniques for importing files.

For a tutorial about importing files see this tutorial.

For a detailed explanation of the import keyword see the Solidity documentation

Here are a some of the main methods of importing a file:

This method uses remixd - the remix daemon. Please go to the remixd tutorial for instructions about how to bridge the divide between the browser and your computers filesystem.
