Adds a taget="_blank" attribute to HTML links in Markdown

Project Description

Adds a taget="_blank" attribute to HTML links in Markdown

This extension adds a taget="_blank" attribute to the HTML output when links are parsed from markdown.
It is not added if the href starts with a # so


will not be touched. Whereas:

[link_text](url) will become <p><a href="url" target="_blank">link_text</a><

Install through pip:

$ pip install MarkdownLinkTarget

To enable the MarkdownLinkTarget package and use it in your markdown generation just add it like so:

import markdown
from MarkdownLinkTarget.linktarget import TargetLinkExtension

result = markdown.markdown(textToRender, extensions=[TargetLinkExtension,]))
