Minimap plugin for Vim

For Japanese please read README_JA.mkd.

Minimap is a file overview sidebar plugin for Vim like the Sublime's Minimap. It only works with Gvim or MacVim.

How it works

Minimap utilizes a new buffer and sets the fonts size to 3 points. It then synchronizes the Minimap buffer with the main editing buffer.
