major/minor grid settings in matplotlibrc

Hi,

A friend was just asking me about how to set grid style in matplotlibrc
to separate settings for minor and major grids.
As far as I understand, it's not possible because the rc file only
includes the following options :

grid.color, grid.linestyle and grid.linewidth

Would it make sense to add also grid.major.* and grid.minor.* (as it
already exists for xticks) ?

best,
Pierre

Sorry if this question was already discussed. I though it was, but a few
Google searches didn't point me to relevant content.

any feedback ?

Hi Pierre,

Thanks for asking on the ML for me :slight_smile:

I dived into the code and came up with a PR (link at the end)
In short, in the constructor of Ticks , self.gridOn is set to the value of rcParam.axes.grid regardless
of wether the Ticks is Major or Minor.

I proposed one fix, but I'm not sure it is the right one and will wait for feedback.
Also My PR will probably conflict with a bigger one so I suppose I won't be in the priority list.

Thanks,

···
