So i'm developing an ajax application in which a controller intakes and outputs information for a user. What is the standard way to figure out the URL for the controller? I'm unsure of the best route to take.



Magento is using :module/:controller/:action/* routing scheme which was inherited from Zend Framework.

Assuming you are working with front controller and have following definition in your config.xml


Also assuming you have your controller in app/code/local/Example/Yourmodule/controllers/AjaxController.php

class Example_Yourmodule_AjaxController extends Mage_Core_Controller_Front_Action
    public function indexAction()
     // do something

Your path would be yourmodule/ajax/index. To get the URL you can call Mage::getUrl('yourmodule/ajax/index');
