func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
    // Configure InstantSearch
    InstantSearch.shared.configure(appID: "latency", apiKey: "1f6fd3a6fb973cb08419fe7d288fa4db", index: "bestbuy_promo")

In your ViewController.swift:

import InstantSearch

override func viewDidLoad() {

    let searchBar = SearchBarWidget(frame: CGRect(x: 20, y: 30, width: 300, height: 40))
    let statsWidget = StatsLabelWidget(frame: CGRect(x: 20, y: 80, width: 300, height: 50))

    // Add all widgets in view to InstantSearch
