External Link
npm version Build Status Coverage Status MIT Licensed
A simple function that tells you whether a link DOM node is 'external'.
A link is external if it:
  • has the attribute rel="external"
  • has the attribute target and the value is not \_self
  • is an absolute link
  • is a telephone link
  • is a mailto link

To use

var external = require('external-link');
var link = document.querySelector('a');

external(link);

Versions

2.0.0 - changed handling of target so that any value other than \_self will make it external
