Magento events: Cheat Sheet

This post is for me as well as for everyone else who is always looking for the Magento events.

My personal favorite is from Mastering Magento:

http://masteringmagento.com/2010/06/events-list-in-magento-community-1-4/

The section that I found most helpful is this

$this->_eventPrefix.'_add_is_active_filter
$this->_eventPrefix.'_delete_after
$this->_eventPrefix.'_delete_after_done
$this->_eventPrefix.'_delete_before
$this->_eventPrefix.'_delete_commit_after
$this->_eventPrefix . '_load_after
$this->_eventPrefix.'_load_after
$this->_eventPrefix . '_load_before
$this->_eventPrefix.'_move_after
$this->_eventPrefix.'_move_before
$this->_eventPrefix.'_'.$process.'_process_run_after
$this->_eventPrefix.'_'.$process.'_process_run_before
$this->_eventPrefix.'_save_after
$this->_eventPrefix.'_save_before
$this->_eventPrefix.'_save_commit_after
$this->_eventPrefix.'_validate_after
$this->_eventPrefix.'_validate_before

What we can do is take the event prefix from the list below and attach the action after. So for example you catalog_product event you want to do something after you simple do catalog_product_save_after. This is in no way a comprehensive list. The website Mastering Magento does offer a script to generate the Magento Events on your Linux server (I have not tried it)
