FLIX (Flow Interaction Templates)

Flow Interaction Templates is a standard for how contract developers, wallets, users, auditors, and applications can create, audit, and verify the intent, security, and metadata of Flow scripts and transactions, with the goal to improve the understandability and security of authorizing transactions and promote patterns for change resilient composability of applications on Flow.

Interaction Templates provide a way to use and reuse existing scripts and transactions, as well as to provide more metadata such as a human-readable title and description of what the transaction or script will do, which can be used by the developer as well as the user of the application.

By using FLIX transactions and scripts, developers don’t have to write their own for common operations!

Using FLIX​

Flow makes FLIX available through an API available at

You can query a FLIX API to get an Interaction Template. An example query looks like:

You can read more about how to query a FLIX API in the documentation available here:


The FLIX working group is currently working on a protocol to publish FLIX templates on-chain.


How to integrate FLIX across different developer teams? For this example there are two github repositories.

The Smart contract developer creates FLIX templates and makes them available in github, these can be versioned. Example is v0.1.0 release, the templates are available for a specific version. In this example the templates are located at:

Developers can use FLIX templates from the smart contract github to interact with their smart contracts. They simply need the FLIX template URLs to create binding files (TypeScript or JavaScript). One major benefit is the web developers don't need to learn Cadence or copy Cadence to their repository in order to integrate with existing smart contracts.

TypeScript code generated from templates:


manually added "@ts-ignore" in generated file because of linting error. 'template' property is typed as "object" when it should also allow strings (url to flix template file). There is current a dev effort that will fix this linting issue.

See the hello-world-web README for more information on how to generate and execute FLIX templates here flow-cli flix commands


There are currently two clients that have integrated with FLIX that you can use:

Go client

FCL client you read how to get started tools/clients/fcl-js/interaction-templates

(Advanced) Running a FLIX API​

Flow provides an implementation of the Flow interaction template service as an open-source project. If you wish to run your own API, you can find the repository here:
