On shiny app ggplotly() renders half the size of plot_ly(), why? what's the fix?

A plot’s width is less than half when using ggplotly vs plot_ly to generate a plotly in a shiny app. Why is that? Is there a way to fix it so that ggplotly produces the plot with the same width as plot_ly or ggplot2? I have tried using the width parameter but that doesn’t fix it.


ui <- fluidPage(
   titlePanel("plotly with shiny"),
        h4("Using ggplotly:"), plotlyOutput("ggplotly"),
        h4("Using native plotly:"), plotlyOutput("plotly"),
        h4("Using ggplot:"), plotOutput("ggplot")

server <- function(input, output) {
  data <- reactive({
    d = diamonds[sample(nrow(diamonds), 300),]
  output$ggplot <- renderPlot({
      ggplot(data(), aes(x=carat, y=price, color=price)) + geom_point()
   output$ggplotly <- renderPlotly({
     v = ggplot(data(), aes(x=carat, y=price, color=price)) + geom_point()
   output$plotly <- renderPlotly({
     plot_ly(data(), x = ~carat, y = ~price, color = ~price)

shinyApp(ui = ui, server = server)
