We use "The Rails Way" where possible so you have to learn as little as possible to get started!
Refinery is available at no cost for anyone to use and modify. There have been contributions from users around the world.
Refinery aims to maintain pace with the latest version of Rails so you always have the newest features.
If you can point and click, you can use Refinery. And if you're building a site for a client, 10 minutes on the phone will get them up and running.
The Refinery UI is beautiful and updated frequently to deliver the most intuitive experience possible for your users.
If extra functionality is what you need, it's easy to create your own extension to get what you want.
Your website is your website, so Refinery is flexible enough to allow for any and every design imaginable.
Refinery is available in over 30 languages including English, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and many more.
There are Refinery contributors from nearly every continent that are happy to help with your issues, or even coach you through your first contribution.
