Instantsearch.js integration with Vue

I’m trying to integrate instantsearch.js into a Vue project to access templating options that, as far as I can tell, aren’t available in the vue-instantsearch library. I’m getting the following error:

“Container must be string or HTMLElement. Unable to find #hits

After researching this, it looks like instantsearch.js is attempting to add the widget before Vue has completed rendering the DOM. How can I solve this issue? Thanks in advance.
