Currently I am making some layouts for my some templates we are going to use. We would also like to have a certain border "frame" on to make the coordinate grid clear. The frame is supposed to look like this:

Frame in general

At first this looks simple we just need to make the frame based on a certain scale bar style, but here things get a bit more complex only that but they also have integrated the X and Y Coordinates of the map (view) extent. Sometimes like this for certain maps: enter image description here

But other times like this: enter image description here

So how do we do this? Not to mention this has to update dynamicly since we are making "templates" layouts, this has to automaticity update and soon as the view and extent changes.
