Module not found: Can't resolve '@angular/cdk/scrolling' #

To solve the error "Module not found: Can't resolve '@angular/cdk/scrolling'", make sure to install the package by opening your terminal in your project's root directory and running the following command: npm i @angular/cdk and restart your IDE and development server.

Open your terminal in your project's root directory (where your package.json file is located) and run the following command:

shell
npm install @angular/cdk
This will add the @angular/cdk package to the dependencies of your project.

If the error is not resolved, try restarting your IDE and your development server.

If you still get the error, try to update the versions of your NPM packages by running the following command:

shell
npm update

If the error is not resolved, try to delete your node_modules and package-lock.json (not package.json) files, re-run npm install and restart your IDE.

shell
# 👇️ delete node_modules and package-lock.json rm -rf node_modules rm -f package-lock.json # 👇️ clean npm cache npm cache clean --force npm install
Make sure to restart your IDE and dev server if the error persists. VSCode often glitches and a reboot solves things sometimes.

If you're still getting the "Module not found: Can't resolve '@angular/cdk/scrolling'" error, open your package.json file and make sure it contains the @angular/cdk package in the dependencies object.

package.json
{ // ... rest "dependencies": { "@angular/cdk": "^13.3.1", } }

You can try to manually add the line and re-run npm install.

shell
npm install

Or install the latest version of the package:

shell
npm install @angular/cdk@latest

The @angular/cdk module should NOT be globally installed or be in your project's devDependencies, it should be in the dependencies object in your package.json file.

If you use VSCode, make sure to open your code editor in the root directory of your project (where the package.json file is located).

If you open your IDE in a different directory, e.g. one directory up, the error is caused.

To solve the error "Module not found: Can't resolve '@angular/cdk/scrolling'", make sure to install the package by opening your terminal in your project's root directory and running the following command: npm i @angular/cdk and restart your IDE and development server.
