I'm looking for a good Magento CE 1.x documentation/manual or class reference (Zend too).
I found these, which I think are good, but could be better:
Are there any "powerful" manuals that Magento developers use?
To give you a good example of what Im looking for, take a look at Yii's (PHP framework) class reference:
it has a powerful search function, lists all attributes/functions of a class, has explanations what function parameters mean and even shows source code.
Anything similiar for Magento/Zend?
Since Magento comes in many different versions, I imagine it's troublesome keeping up a well tended documentation, every class reference I find is automatically generated. Are there really no alternatives?
You can use following Magento Documentation (phpdoc).But I do not think it it has version specific information.
It's true that Magento do not have good documentaion like other frame works.
But if you are facing a technical problem please post your question in the forum or http://magento.stackexchange.com/
If you are looking for Zend documentation refer this http://framework.zend.com/manual/1.11/en/manual.html
