While I have no experience with the eye-fi cards I do have a Transcend WiFi card. I use small script that checks the card for newly added files every (few) seconds via its web api and downloads them into a configurable folder. Then there is a second script  running that watches that folder and imports newly added files into a running darktable. Quite crude and with lots of potential for optimizations, but it kind of works. For speed reasons I only fetch JPEGs over the air so I have to remember to tell my camera to shoot both. > My question is, if there is some support by > darktable for this.
