Other Args

Other arguments passed to your application are accessible within actions using cli.OtherArgs():

package main

import (


func main() {

    // Create new cli
    cli := clir.NewCli("Other Args", "Access other arguments", "v0.0.1")

    // Set long description
    cli.LongDescription("This app shows how to access non-flag arguments")

    // Name
    var name string
    cli.StringFlag("name", "Your name", &name)

    // Define action
    cli.Action(func() error {
        println("Your name is", name)
        fmt.Printf("The remaining arguments were: %+v\n", cli.OtherArgs())
        return nil

    // Run!


Running this command prints the following:

$ ./otherargs -name test other args
Your name is test
The remaining arguments were: [other args]

Cli.OtherArgs() []string

The OtherArgs method returns all arguments to the application that are not handled by the defined flags. NOTE: This will only return correct values if accessed in an Action.
