How to use Apple News module

Need to get this set up here on the DrupalTutor blog.

For Module Developers

For Themers

Drupal 8

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.
