Refinery CMS

Refinery CMS, often shortened to Refinery, is an open source content management system written in Ruby as a Ruby on Rails web application with jQuery used as the JavaScript library. RefineryCMS supports Rails 3.2.[1]

Refinery differs from similar products by targeting a non-technical end user and allowing the developer to create a flexible website rapidly by staying as close as possible to the conventions of the Ruby on Rails framework[2].

Version 1.0.0 was released[3] on the 28th of May, 2011 - exactly 2 years after it was first released as open source software.

Version 2.0.0 was released[4] on the 29th of February, 2012



Refinery started as a closed sourced project written by David Jones at Resolve Digital in 2004[5] and went on to be released as open source software under the MIT License on the 28th May 2009 [6]. Since then it has gained popularity[7] and is now the most popular Ruby on Rails CMS [8] with more than 200 contributors [9] and an active community extending the application with engines [10].
