The following information is from the RouteJs website:

RouteJs

RouteJs allows you to use your ASP.NET MVC or WebForms routes from JavaScript. It does not depend on jQuery or any other JavaScript framework, so can be used in any scenario. RouteJs works with your existing MVC routes, you do not need to use a different routing syntax or modify any of your existing routes at all.

Bug reports and feature requests are welcome!

Build status  NuGet downloads  NuGet version 

Requirements

Required:

  • ASP.NET 4.0 or higher
  • Json.NET
  • Any version of ASP.NET MVC from 2 onwards

Installation

For ASP.NET MVC 5 and older

Install-Package RouteJs.Mvc4

(replace RouteJs.Mvc4 with RouteJs.Mvc3 for ASP.NET MVC 3 or RouteJs.Mvc2 for ASP.NET MVC 2)

Alternatively, you can get the latest development build from the build server.

Once installed, you need to reference the RouteJs handler in your view. This serves the JavaScript and route information:

<script src="@RouteJs.RouteJsHandler.HandlerUrl"></script>

For ASP.NET Core (formerly ASP.NET 5) and ASP.NET Core MVC

Install-Package RouteJs.AspNet

Once installed, you need to add RouteJs to your Startup.cs file, and also ensure IActionContextAccessor is registered:

services.AddSingleton<IActionContextAccessor, ActionContextAccessor>();
services.AddRouteJs();

The RouteJs handler also needs to be referenced in your view (generally _Layout.cshtml is a good place for this). This serves the JavaScript and route information:

@inject RouteJs.IRouteJsHelper RouteJs
@RouteJs.Render()

Usage

The main function is Router.action. This accepts three parameters: - Name of the controller - Name of the action - Any additional parameters

Examples:

// Using the default route
var url = Router.action('Controller', 'Action'); // eg. /Controller/Action

// Handling optional parameters
var url = Router.action('Foo', 'Bar', { id: 123 }); // eg. /Foo/Bar/123

// Appending querystring parameters
var url = Router.action('Foo', 'Bar', { hello: 'world' }); // eg. /Foo/Bar?hello=world

The routes that are exposed are controlled by the web.config "exposeAllRoutes" setting for ASP.NET MVC 5 and below:

<routeJs exposeAllRoutes="true" />

And via Startup.cs for ASP.NET MVC 6:

services.AddRouteJs().ConfigureRouteJs(config => {
	config.ExposeAllRoutes = true;
});

If set to "true", all of your ASP.NET MVC routes will be exposed to JavaScript, unless you explicitly hide them via the HideRoutesInJavaScript attribute on a controller. If set to "false", all routes will be hidden unless you explicitly use the ExposeRoutesInJavaScript attribute on the controller. These two attributes currently affect all routes for the controller.
