Where to find Magento 1x proper developer documentation?

I'm looking for a "proper" reference for Magento CE 1.9 to write own module. Documentation that covers all aspect of Magento System so I could refer to it, just like I do in Zend or Symfony frameworks:

 

https://symfony.com/doc/current/index.html

https://framework.zend.com/manual/2.4/en/index.html

 

I spent last hour trying to find it and it seems it doesn't exist? And I'm not talking about:

http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/m1x/

https://magento.com/resources/technical

Which barely contains any "serious" stuff...

Hi @karop90210,

 

I guess that at this point you won't find something like that for Magento1.

You can use the links that you found and also there are a lot of specilized blogs with examples and explanations.

There is a backup of old documents that you can find here: https://magento2.atlassian.net/wiki/display/m1wiki/Magento+1.x+Wiki

 

I'll hope you find the kind of information that you are looking for. In fot, you can ask on this forums again.

Re: Where to find Magento 1x proper developer documentation?

@Damian CulottaThanks for reply... That is very strange since there's so many websites running Magento 1x  and it's still live!!! Very disappointing...

Re: Where to find Magento 1x proper developer documentation?

I understand why you're saying that. (That's why on Magento 2 they are doing several things in a different way)

In the past forums where very usefull and the old wiki (the link that I've sent you) too.

If you want deeper insights about Magento you can read the Alan Storm's blog: http://alanstorm.com/

Re: Where to find Magento 1x proper developer documentation?

I browsed Alan's website, it has a lot of articles but it is not comprehensive as a reference should be... I need to write a module and now I see it is going to be very frustrating adventure.

Re: Where to find Magento 1x proper developer documentation?

Maybe, but if you want to move forward you can start here:

 

Also, you'll find content like this on the link that I've sent you before: https://magento2.atlassian.net/wiki/display/m1wiki/Create+a+custom+module+with+a+custom+database+tab...

Re: Where to find Magento 1x proper developer documentation?

Thanks @Damian Culotta

I found something interesting:

http://doc-magento.com/nav.html

You can search for functions and view their reference, i.e.:

http://doc-magento.com/nav.html?lib/Varien/Db/Ddl/Table.php.source.html

Which will be a little help at least.

Re: Where to find Magento 1x proper developer documentation?

As a bottom line I'd like to say:

 

Don't write Magento 1x modules unless you enjoy a painful road without guides and references.
