darktable includes 47 image adjustment plugins which are divided into basic group (plugins for simple well-known photo adjustment operations), tone group (plugins related to contrast and lighting), color group(plugins related to hue and saturation), correction group (plugins for repairing visual imperfections) and effect group (artistic postprocessing plugins). Darktable’s smooth user interface is built around efficient caching of image metadata and mipmaps which are all stored in a database and produces high quality output with lightable, darkroom, tethering and a map view. darktable can be controlled by scripts written in Lua version 5.2 where Lua can be used to define actions which darktable should perform whenever a specified event is triggered.
