            Bug ID: 341186
           Summary: integrate with darktable
           Product: digikam
           Version: 4.4.0
          Platform: Debian unstable
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Workflow
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: j.nespolo at gmail.com

I find digikam to be the best program out there for managing large libraries of
pictures, tagging and organising them. The image editor is also very good when
working with raster graphics.
However, I find darktable to be a lot more practical for editing raw files,
which currently are the majority in my library.

It would be extremely handy to have the option to tell digikam to offload all
raw editing to darktable, yet maintain the possibility to preview the images in
In practice, this would require to wrap whatever darktable uses to generate the
thumbnails from the raw files + sidecar xmp files in a kde widget. Then digikam
would have to use that widget to display its own thumbnails. Finally, opening
the editor on a raw file would fire up an instance of darktable.

Integrating digikam and darktable we could have the best of both worlds:
awesome metadata management and nondestructive raw workflow.

Reproducible: Always
