PHP Parsedown, add target=_blank to links

In case you want all your links in your markdown to open in a new tab, you might want to add target="_blank" systematically. You can do it with Parsedown. However, I now use CommonMark. I'm not really sure why I changed & I'm not sure how to do this in common mark.

if (!class_exists('MyParsedown')){
    class MyParsedown extends Parsedown {
        protected function inlineLink($excerpt){
            $link = parent::inlineLink($excerpt);
            if (!isset($link))return null;
            $link['element']['attributes']['target'] = '_blank';

            // var_dump($link);
            // throw new \Exception('love cats');
            return $link;
