Top 9 Go Flag Projects

  • kong

    Kong is a command-line parser for Go (by alecthomas)

    Project mention: Coral, a friendly Cobra fork with nearly all its features, but only 4 dependencies | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-02-02

    We switched all our cli tools from cobra/viper to kong. I can highly recommend it. Almost no deps and easy to use, a great replacement for cobra in my opinion.

  • flaggy

    Idiomatic Go input parsing with subcommands, positional values, and flags at any position. No required project or package layout and no external dependencies.

    Project mention: Return error if an command line argument does not exist in the program | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-05-11

    Maybe the flaggy package can do this easily, but if there is a way with the standard flag package it would be best.

  • grumble

    A powerful modern CLI and SHELL

    Project mention: Ask HN: What libraries does go have for building interactive shells? | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-01-16

    I want to build a command line tool with context-sensitive completion. This is important because it allows interactive exploration of the options -- both of the application and of the current data model -- available to the user.

    So far this is what I've found.





    I would like to know people's experiences and recommendations in building such an app in go.
