MyEllaWallet is a free, open-source, client-side tool for easily & securely interacting with the Ellaism network. As one of the leading providers of Ellaism services, MyEllaWallet equips users with an easy-to-understand and accessible suite of tools for their needs.


Our Philosophy

  • Empower the people: Give people the ability to interact with the Ethereum blockchain easily, without having to run a full node.
  • Make it easy & free: Everyone should be able to create a wallet and send Ether & Tokens without additional cost.
  • People are the Priority: People are the most important & their experience trumps all else. If monetization worsens the experience, we don't do it. (e.g. ads)
  • A learning experience, too: We want to educate about Ethereum, security, privacy, importance of controlling your own keys, how the blockchain works, and how Ethereum and blockchain technologies enable a better world.
  • If it can be hacked, it will be hacked: Never save, store, or transmit secret info, like passwords or keys.
  • Offline / Client-Side: User should be able to run locally and offline without issue.
  • Private: No tracking!!! No emails. No ads. No demographics. We don't even know how many wallets have been generated, let alone who / what / where you are.
  • Open source & audit-able

Users (non-developers)

  • It is recommended you start here.
  • You can run MyEtherWallet.com on your computer. You can create a wallet completely offline & send transactions from the "Offline Transaction" page.
  1. Go to https://github.com/kvhnuke/etherwallet/releases/latest.
  2. Click on dist-vX.X.X.X.zip.
  3. Move zip to an airgapped computer.
  4. Unzip it and double-click index.html.
  5. MyEtherWallet.com is now running entirely on your computer.

In case you are not familiar, you need to keep the entire folder in order to run the website, not just index.html. Don't touch or move anything around in the folder. If you are storing a backup of the MyEtherWallet repo for the future, we recommend just storing the ZIP so you can be sure the folder contents stay intact.

As we are constantly updating MyEtherWallet.com, we recommend you periodically update your saved version of the repo.


If you want to help contribute, here's what you need to know to get it up and running and compiling.

  • Both the Chrome Extension and the MyEtherWallet.com are compiling from the same codebase. This code is found in the app folder. Don't touch the dist or chrome-extension folders.
  • We use angular and bootstrap. We used to use jQuery and Bootstrap until it was converted in April 2016. If you wonder why some things are set up funky, that's why.
  • The mercury branch is currently the active development branch. We then push the dist folder live to gh-pages, which then gets served to MyEtherWallet.com.
  • We use npm / gulp for compiling. There is a lot of stuff happening in the compliation.
  • Old node setups can be found in in json_relay_node (node.js) & json_relay_php (php). These are great resources for developers looking to get started and launch a public node on a $40 linode instance.

Getting Started

  • Start by running npm install.
  • Run npm run dev. Gulp will then watch & compile everything and then watch for changes to the HTML, JS, or CSS.
  • For distribution, run npm run dist.

Folder Structure

  • fonts and images get moved into their respective folders. This isn't watched via gulp so if you add an image or font, you need to run gulp again.

  • includes are the pieces of the pages / the pages themselves. These are pretty self explanatory and where you will make most frontend changes.

  • layouts are the pages themselves. These basically take all the pieces of the pages and compile into one massive page. The navigation is also found here...sort of.

  • You can control what shows up on MyEtherWallet.com vs the Chrome Extension by using: @@if (site === 'cx' ) { ... } and @@if (site === 'mew' ) { ... }. Check out sendTransaction.tpl to see it in action. The former will only compile to the Chrome Extension. The latter only to MyEtherWallet.com.

  • embedded.html is for embedding the wallet generation into third-party sites. Read more about it and how to listen for the address generated here.

  • The wallet decrypt directives are at scripts/directives/walletDecryptDrtv.js. These show up on a lot of pages.

  • The navigation is in scripts/services/globalServices.js. Again, we control which navigation items show up in which version of the site in this single file.

  • As of September 2016, almost all the copy in the .tpl files are only there as placeholders. It all gets replaced via angular-translate. If you want to change some copy you need to do so in scripts/translations/en.js folder. You should also make a note about what you changed and move it to the top of the file so that we can make sure it gets translated if necessary.

  • styles is all the less. It's a couple custom folders and bootstrap. This badly needs to be redone. Ugh.
