Use git-timemachine with Evil

  |   Source

git-timemachine is simple.

After "M-x git-timemachine", a new read-only buffer is created and I need only use six key bindings: "n", "q", "p", "w", "W", "g".

The problem is I'm using Evil. How to make git-timemachine's key bindings override Evil's?

I consulted the issue with Frank Fischer.

The solution is simple. Insert below code into ~/.emacs:

;; @see
(with-eval-after-load 'git-timemachine
  (evil-make-overriding-map git-timemachine-mode-map 'normal)
  ;; force update evil keymaps after git-timemachine-mode loaded
  (add-hook 'git-timemachine-mode-hook #'evil-normalize-keymaps))

I also recommend reading his in-depth discussion on general handling of keybindings conflict between evil and other minor modes.
