Kiln is developed and maintained by a team at the Department of Digital Humanities (DDH), King’s College London. Over the past years and versions, Kiln has been used to generate more than 50 websites which have very different source materials and customised functionality.

Kiln builds upon Apache Cocoon, Apache Solr and Sesame to provide high quality implementations of common elements of rich web applications.

Kiln's documentation is available online at Read the Docs.
