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.
Refinery started as a closed sourced project written by David Jones at Resolve Digital in 2004 and went on to be released as open source software under the MIT License on 28 May 2009. Since then it has, under the direction of Philip Arndt and U?is Ozols, gained popularity and is now the most popular Ruby on Rails CMS  with more than 384 contributors  and an active community extending the application with engines.
Version 1.0.0 was released on 28 May 2011 - exactly 2 years after it was first released as open source software.
