How to use Apple News module
Need to get this set up here on the DrupalTutor blog.
For Module Developers

Default Search API Sorts Per View in Drupal 7
Building an app in Drupal's theme layer

Drupal Commerce 2.x Stories: Stores
This looks great! It's gives you marketplace capability out of the box. So, you can have multiple stores and sellers on a single site.
