Requirements

How to

Getting Started

If you're new to Refinery, start with this guide:

What's it good at?

Refinery is great for sites where the client needs to be able to update their website themselves without being bombarded with anything too complicated.

Unlike other content managers, Refinery is truly aimed at the end user making it easy for them to pick up and make changes themselves.

For developers

  • Easily customise the look to suit the business.
  • Extend with custom engines to do anything Refinery doesn't do out of the box.
  • Sticks to "the Rails way" as much as possible; we don't force you to learn new templating languages.
  • Uses jQuery for fast and concise Javascript.
