Collage / Minimap Idea

Collage / Minimap Idea

Hello

I made some collage with Sublime... check the result.

Nothing really new, just fully customized GUI. I kept the tabs layout, as I love it as it is.


I just painted a "micro map". Skinner said something about making it free of hardware video resources, so I imagined something like WinMerge's map. Instead of a far view, it could be an abstract view of the code.

WinMerge shows the diffs in the map, Sublime could show the contexts and indent levels in the map.

The scaled minimap is great but this abstract block map would be much more readable. I also like it as an alternative to the scrollbar. Nice ideas.

Hey, this is Tortoise Merge's screenshot:

It is the abstraction of the whole file. The blue area is the current view.

When you mouse over the map, it shows a "magnify" area (gray highlight not shown in any TM screenshot). I didn't get if there's correlation with screen size or anything, but it's very cool :P
