Are you looking for a platform that allows you to create digital product templates that can be used by other people? Look no further than Kahana.

Kahana is a platform that allows for collaboration and creation of digital products in the form of a hub.

A hub is a unit of creation within Kahana that can be created with other people. You can invite other creators and experts to collaborate on your hub and assign them roles such as administrators, editors, commenters, or viewers. 

Once you have created a hub, other people can fork it as a template, which means they can create a duplicate version of the hub that is their own to branch off of. This concept is similar to forking in GitHub, a platform that allows collaboration and productive building for developers.
