Routing Assistant is a free Visual Studio extension which allows developers to easily browse, define, match and filter ASP.NET routes for their ASP.NET applications and web sites, without leaving the IDE. Once installed, Routing Assistant adds two new windows to Visual Studio, named Routing Explorer and URL Mapper, and integrates with the code window (C# only).
Routing Explorer is a solution explorer-like window which allows to easily browse and filter the ASP.NET routes defined in the active solution. For attribute-based routes (more about that below), allows one-click navigation to their MVC action methods.
URL Mapper is a tool window which allows to easily type and map a given URL to its matching route(s), displaying detailed information for each match, including the captured DataTokens and Values.
Code window integration
Routing Assistant also brings several enhancements to the code window (C# only), including syntax colorization for MVC actions and methods within your code, plus error squiggles shown on logical routing errors (for example, both [HttpGet] and [HttpPost] applied to the same action method).
On top of that, when paired with our MVC Extensions
, it exposes additional cool features, including a gorgeous graphical representation of the attribute-based routes
which the extensions provide support for, the ability to click on a declarative route in Routing Explorer (and URL Mapper) and directly jump to its MVC action method, and much much more.
