To install this package, run in Emacs:
M-x package-install RET minimap RET
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. Additionally, you can overlay information from the tags gathered by CEDET's semantic analyzer. Simply use M-x minimap-mode to toggle activation of the minimap. Use 'M-x customize-group RET minimap RET' to adapt minimap to your needs.
Changes since v1.1: - Change some defaults: better colors, reduced update delay. - `minimap-tag-only': New experimental feature to only display an 'abstract view' of the buffer with overlays generated from Semantic information. Works only for buffers parsed by Semantic. - `minimap-highlight-line': Highlight current line in Minimap. - Fix autoloads. - Display lines denoting beginning/end of functions in Semantic overlays. Changes since v1.0: - Largely rewritten as a minor mode; use M-x minimap-mode to enable/disable. - Minimap will now remain active for all buffers which derive from `prog-mode' (can be changed through `minimap-major-modes'). The minimap window will be automatically created or deleted (see new variables `minimap-recreate-window' and `minimap-automatically-delete-window'). - Possibility to set a minimum width of the minimap window (`minimap-minimum-width'). - Minimap window will be marked so that you should not be able to enter it. - Semantic overlays will be automatically updated during editing. - Lots of bug fixes.
