This is the error I am getting when trying to run my plugin.

"NameError: name 'QVariant' is not defined" This same code will work in the python console in QGIS. So, I don't have an idea as to why it won't work in the plugin that I am making.

from PyQt5.QtCore import QSettings, QTranslator, qVersion, QCoreApplication
from PyQt5.QtGui import QIcon
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QAction, QFileDialog
from qgis.core import *
from qgis.core import QgsField

def Create_fields(self, layer):

    list_fields = []

    for field in layer.fields():
        field_id = field.name()

    # Adding fields to shapefile

    if len(list_fields) == 1:
        res = layer.dataProvider().addAttributes([
            QgsField("Avg_NDVI", QVariant.Double),
            QgsField("Date", QVariant.Date),
            QgsField("Study_Type", QVariant.Int),
            QgsField("Trial_Num", QVariant.Int),
            QgsField("Plot_Num", QVariant.Int),
            QgsField("Trt", QVariant.Int),
            QgsField("Rep", QVariant.Int)])


The fix was changing the qVersion to QVariant in the import statement area.

    It looks like you haven't actually imported the QVariant class, and you have an unused import 'QVersion'. What happens if you change QVersion to QVariant in your import statement? – Ben W Jun 13 '18 at 22:26
