The other side of the Ownable package will contain the visual elements: HTML, and media files like images and videos.


The index.html file will be rendered as widget in the wallet. It should have a structure resembling the following:
// all the styles for your ownable
// your ownable html
// any necessary functions


The styling should be responsive on all devices. As the wallet will render your provided template, you are in complete control of how it will be displayed.
The widgets in which the Ownables will be placed always have a 1:1 aspect ratio (square). Use the viewport units vh and vw, and/or aspect-ratio to ensure the content of the widget properly scales.
.square {
width: 50vw;
height: 50vh;
border: 1px solid black;
img.banner {
width: 80vw;
aspect-ratio: 4:1;


Ownable templates communicate with the wallet via messages.
An execute message can be sent to the window parent, which will be forwarded to the CosmWasm smart contract and stored on the event chain.
type: "execute",
ownable_id: ownable_id,
msg: {
"do_something: {}
The widget will receive a message from the parent window after the state of the smart contract changes.
window.addEventListener("message", (event) => {
const state =;
document.getElementById("my_element").style.backgroundColor = state.color;


If we consider the potion example which you can find in our demo repository, the script part of our HTML template may contain methods like this:
// Listen for a click on the button defined in the html template
// which will trigger the consume method
document.getElementById("drink-button").addEventListener('click', () => consume());
function consume() {
// building the message to be passed to WASM for execution
// this should match the msg expected by the entry points
let msg = {
"consume": {
"amount": getDrinkAmount(),
// posting the message to the wallet which will relay it to WASM
// check index.js for the listener to see how it does it
window.parent.postMessage({type: "execute", ownable_id, msg}, "*");
// gets the selected amount to drink from the html slider
function getDrinkAmount() {
let stringAmount = document.getElementsByClassName('slider')[0].valueOf().value;
return parseInt(stringAmount);
// listener for the wallet messages indicating the state after the execute msg
// see wasm-wrappers.js for details:
window.addEventListener("message", (event) => {
const state =;
updateTemplate(state.color, state.current_amount)
// method to update the visual template defined in the html file
function updateTemplate(color, amt) {
document.getElementsByClassName('juice')[0].style.backgroundColor = color;
document.getElementsByClassName('juice')[0] = (100 - amt) + '%';
document.getElementsByClassName('juice')[0].style.height = amt + '%';
document.getElementsByClassName('amount')[0].textContent = amt;
