CI License Vim Neovim pre-commit Contributors


✨ Features

  • Blazing-fast (see benchmark).
  • Dynamic scaling.
  • Real-time highlight.
  • It can be used to scroll buffer (in vim's way!).

? Installation


  • ?code-minimap is required. The plugin receives rendered minimap from it.
  • vim8.2+, or neovim 0.5.0+.

Use your favorite plugin manager, vim-plug for example:

Plug 'wfxr/minimap.vim'

If you need to install the plugin manually, you can refer to this issue: #2.

You can use cargo to install 'code-minimap' simultaneously (Only recommended for rust users):

Plug 'wfxr/minimap.vim', {'do': ':!cargo install --locked code-minimap'}

⚙ Color Options

Minimap.vim sets its own color groups to give a reasonable default.

Flag Default Description
g:minimap_search_color_priority 120 the priority for the search highlight colors
g:minimap_cursor_color_priority 110 the priority for the cursor highlight colors
g:minimap_cursor_color minimapCursor the color group for current position
g:minimap_range_color minimapRange the color group for window range (if highlight_range is enabled)
g:minimap_search_color Search the color group for highlighted search patterns in the minimap
g:minimap_diffadd_color minimapDiffAdded the color group for added lines (if git_colors is enabled)
g:minimap_diffremove_color minimapDiffRemoved the color group for removed lines (if git_colors is enabled)
g:minimap_diff_color minimapDiffLine the color group for modified lines (if git_colors is enabled)
g:minimap_cursor_diffadd_color minimapCursorDiffAdded the color group for the cursor over added lines
g:minimap_cursor_diffremove_color minimapCursorDiffRemoved the color group for the cursor over removed lines
g:minimap_cursor_diff_color minimapCursorDiffLine the color group for the cursor over modified lines
g:minimap_range_diffadd_color minimapRangeDiffAdded the color group for the window range encompassing added lines
g:minimap_range_diffremove_color minimapRangeDiffRemoved the color group for the window range encompassing removed lines
g:minimap_range_diff_color minimapRangeDiffLine the color group for the window range encompassing modified lines

You can create your own colorgroup by specifying the foreground and background colors for the cterm or gui:

:highlight minimapCursor ctermbg=59  ctermfg=228 guibg=#5F5F5F guifg=#FFFF87

For more information, see :help highlight

Note: some colorschemes will clear all previous colors, so you may have to add an autocmd to ensure your custom colorgroups are added back:

autocmd ColorScheme *
        \ highlight minimapCursor            ctermbg=59  ctermfg=228 guibg=#5F5F5F guifg=#FFFF87 |
        \ highlight minimapRange             ctermbg=242 ctermfg=228 guibg=#4F4F4F guifg=#FFFF87

If you prefer to disable this behavior, set g:minimap_enable_highlight_colorgroup to 0 / false. This is useful if you have a color scheme that sets the minimap highlight groups explicitly.

? F.A.Q

Highlight and scroll are not working properly.

Check the vim version you are using. minimap.vim requires vim 8.2+ or neovim 0.5.0+.

Integrated with diagnostics or git status plugins?

Not implemented currently but it should be possible. Welcome to contribute!

update: Git support has been implemented #72.

Minimap window is too wide for me, how to use it as a simple scrollbar?

You can reduce the width of the minimap window:

let g:minimap_width = 2

Or use scrollbar.nvim instead if what you want is a pure scrollbar indicator.

How do the color priorities work?

A higher priority color group will override a lower priority color group. By default, search > cursor/window position > git colors

I don't like the default highlight group, how to change it?

Choose any one of the highlight groups (or define a new one) and just set it for minimap like this:

hi MinimapCurrentLine ctermfg=Green guifg=#50FA7B guibg=#32302f
let g:minimap_cursor_color = 'MinimapCurrentLine'

All existed Highlight groups can be displayed by :hi.

Minimap shows up as a jumble of characters?

Check that your encoding is set to utf-8 and not latin1 (for Vim users). Also, ensure that you're using a Unicode-compatible font that has Braille characters in it.

What is g:minimap_highlight_range and how do you use it?

You can have the minimap highlight all the visible lines in your current window by setting g:minimap_highlight_range. If you use Neovim, and your version is recent enough (after November 7, 2020), you can set this option to update the highlight when the window is scrolled.


I'm using g:minimap_highlight_search and the highlighted searches don't go away until I :nohlsearch and save!

It is recommended that you create a mapping to run :nohlsearch and clear the minimap all in one action. For example:

nnoremap <silent> `` :nohlsearch<CR>:call minimap#vim#ClearColorSearch()<CR>

? Running Unit Tests

  • Install Testify.
  • From the top level directory (minimap.vim/) vim +TestifySuite for a yay/nay from your shell.
  • For a more detailed run, open vim at the top level and run :TestifySuite. works, but an empty buffer at the top level works too.
  • To hone in on one test file, open that file (located in the t/ directory) and run :TestifyFile.
    • (As a note, the t/ directory is named such as a requirement from Testify. :TestifySuite runs all the tests in the t/ directory)
