Plotly+Holoviews+Datashader & Datetime axes doesn't work for Quadmesh

I have been trying out the new Holoviews integration with Dash as it finally offers a great native solution to use datashader for some of the plots in my dashboard. However, one issue I haven’t found a solution to (despite much googling) is the problem with datetime axes, particularly for Quadmeshes. When I visualize the rasterized quadmesh without a datetime x-axis, it works fine. When I replace the x-axis with datetimes, I always get the following error (no matter what formatting I try) :

Traceback (most recent call last):

TypeError: float() argument must be a string or a number, not 'datetime.timedelta'

It seems like the combination of plotly+rasterize does not like datetime axes, even though they are supported by regular holoviews+dash. I made an MWE to illustrate the issue:

import dash
import dash_html_components as html
import holoviews as hv
from holoviews.plotting.plotly.dash import to_dash
from holoviews.operation.datashader import rasterize
import numpy as np
import pandas as pd

# Normal numeric x-axis (this works when used in hv.QuadMesh)
X = np.logspace(1,5,100)
# Datetime x-axis
X_datetime = pd.date_range(start='1/1/2018', end='1/08/2018',periods=100)

Y = np.linspace(1,100,100)
Z = np.random.randn(100,100)

options = dict(cmap='jet',

figure  = rasterize(hv.QuadMesh((X_datetime, Y, Z)),
figure = figure.opts(**options)

app = dash.Dash(__name__)
components = to_dash(app,

app.layout = html.Div(components.children)

if __name__ == "__main__":

Is the possibility to have datetime axes in a rasterized holoviews chart simply not supported by the Plotly renderer, or am I doing something wrong here?
Thanks in advance!
