digiKam for DAM and darktable for developing images are a frequent twin. Obviously digiKam doesn't apply darktable's processing so it displays raw files (and any other) using embedded previews or own development settings.
I wonder if someone has found out a way to make digiKam actually use darktable output for previews? Possibly it's not that impossible with some tricks or a minor development on either side.
I thought about embedding previews produced by darktable into XMP for a given version and making digiKam use that. Or producing preview images in darktable with a given naming convention alongside the XMP and again making digiKam use them. Of course, raw files should remain intact.
What you think?
