Sidebar showing a "mini-map" of a buffer

M-x package-install minimap
David Engster

This file is an implementation of a minimap sidebar, i.e., a smaller display of the current buffer on the left side. It highlights the currently shown region and updates its position automatically. You can navigate in the minibar by dragging the active region with the mouse, which will scroll the corresponding edit buffer.

To create the minimap sidebar, type M-x minimap-create. To dismiss it, type M-x minimap-kill.

Usage: * Use 'M-x minimap-create' in a buffer you're currently editing. * Use 'M-x minimap-kill' to kill the minimap. * Use 'M-x customize-group RET minimap RET' to adapt minimap to your needs.
