How to enable minor grid lines in panel application?

I am experiencing that minor grid lines are shown in Jupyter Notebook, but not in Panel Application.
Any suggestions on how to enable minor gridlines in Panel Application are highly appreciated, see example below (only tested with plotly backend).

System info:

Python 3.9.12 | packaged by conda-forge | (main, Mar 24 2022, 23:17:03) [MSC v.1929 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
panel.__version__: '0.13.1'
plotly.__version__: '5.8.0'
bokeh.__version__: '2.4.3'
jupyter_core: 4.10.0
notebook: 6.4.8
conda 4.13.0
import panel as pn
import as px
import pandas as pd

pn.extension('plotly', sizing_mode = 'fixed')

df =
fig = px.scatter(df, x="total_bill", y="tip", color="sex")


fig.update_layout(width=800, height=550)

### Alt. 1 -> figure is shown as expected with minor gridlines in Jupyter Notebook
fig.update_layout(title='In Jupyter Notebook β†’ minor gridlines are shown')

### Alt. 2 -> figure is not shown with minor gridlines
fig.update_layout(title='Panel Application β†’ minor gridlines are missing')
pane = pn.panel(fig, sizing_mode='fixed')


Looks like this feature was only added in Plotly 5.8.0 (and Plotly.js 2.12.0). For now you could patch the Plotly.js version manually with:

from panel.models.plotly import PlotlyPlot
PlotlyPlot.__javascript_raw__[1] = ''

but could you also file an issue so we don’t forget to update to latest in Panel itself.

Excellent, this worked, and thanks a lot for the quick reply. I am fairly new to the Holoviz ecosystem, but so far this looks like a really great and comprehensive effort!
