NuGet Version Coverage Status

UrlActionGenerator is a C# Source Generator for ASP.NET Core apps that create strongly typed extension methods for the generation of URL's in ASP.NET Core projects.

So instead of writing this by using magical strings:

<a asp-controller="Home" asp-action="Index" asp-route-param="4">Link</a>
