Description: 

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. Refinery runs on Rails 3.2.

Refinery differs from similar projects 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.

The Refinery philosophy includes several guiding principles:

“The Rails Way” where possible – Refinery embraces conventions used in Rails, allowing any Rails programmer to leverage existing knowledge to get up and running quickly.
End user focused interface – Refinery’s user interface is simple, bright and attractive so end users feel invited and not overwhelmed.
Awesome developer tools – Refinery makes it easy for developers to add functionality and change the front end look and feel.
Encourage and Help Others – Refinery has an active community on Google Groups and IRC. If you ever have a question there is someone able and willing to assist.
