let favoritesViewController = FavoritesViewController()
let settingsViewController = SettingsViewController()

let image = UIImage(named: "x").withRenderingMode(.alwaysOriginal)
let selectedImage = UIImage(named: "y").withRenderingMode(.alwaysOriginal)
homeViewController.tabBarItem = UITabBarItem(title: title, image: image, selectedImage: selectedImage)
