Creating a module in magento

Magento is famous e-commerce platform built on open-source technology. Magento platform provides their online merchants some great features like – powerful marketing, search engine optimization, catalog-management tools, control over the look, control over the content, control over the functionality and unprecedented flexibility. However creation of magento module is not an easy task for a beginner. You need to have basic understanding of magento, php and html. First of all you should disable the cache as it causes many technical difficulties. Go to the app/code directory, in this directory modules are divided into three parts core, community and local. The app/code/core directory includes all the functionality for the products, categories, customers, payments, etc. The app/code/community directory includes third party modules. The app/code/local directory is empty and is provided to add custom-made modules. You need to create directories for module namespace, module name, configuring the module. You need to create a xml file to inform the Magento about the existence of our module and then do cross check for your module. Then define an event observer. You need to create a observer model when the event is triggered. The last step is the checking if your module works or not. Log in your magento admin panel and update a new product in the catalog and check the var/log folder to see if the yourproduct-updates.log file gets populated or not. For checking go to Admin Panel >> System >> Configuration >> Developer >> Log Settings >> Enabled.
