Project Description

Darktable is an open source RAW development tool that can run on Linux, its UI is based on GTK and supports many cameras. And Ansel (firstly called R-Darktable) is a fork by Aurélien PIERRE, who (as he claimed) is a core-dev and resident color science guy of Darktable.

The originate of forking darktable is that Aurélien PIERRE thinks the original Darktable is over-engineered, has too much options that most users do not care, so he decide to remove some options, provide a better default and make the GUI clean.

I've used R-Darktable for months and feels quite good about it. Some default settings are really strange on the original Darktable.

Goal for this Hackweek

OK, at first the fork is just called R-Darktable and every things keep their old name, which means you cannot install Darktable and R-Darktable both. Then Aurélien decides to rename the fork to Ansel, and rename all installed files, so they can co-exist. Most files got renamed but some are not and I found I cannot get it build on my system.

All my photographer friends use Adobe Lightroom and seems I am the only one who develops RAW on Linux and knows Darktable, so I decide to fix this by myself.

I've posted a PR to fix building errors (accepted): https://github.com/aurelienpierreeng/ansel/pull/76.

Fix CR3 support in AppImage for old OS (accepted): https://github.com/aurelienpierreeng/ansel/pull/85.

Fix indirect dependencies of plugins in AppImage: https://github.com/aurelienpierreeng/ansel/pull/86.

Slider tweaks (thanks @jesingh !): https://github.com/aurelienpierreeng/ansel/pull/83.

There are still other tasks needing help: https://github.com/orgs/aurelienpierreeng/projects/1/views/1.
