Cobra Bool Flags


I just started Golang (my first programming language).

Please I am trying to write a CLI app that will have the following command:

tk8 cluster aws

But I want the following flags to behave like this:

tk8 cluster aws --cloud (Initiate a cloud infrrastructure with necessary elements e.g EC2, VPC, etc)

tk8 cluster aws --install (start kubernetes installation on the AWS cloud)

Current code I have is this:

package cmd

import (


var install,cloud string

// awsCmd represents the aws command
var awsCmd = &cobra.Command{
	Use:   "aws",
	Short: "Manages the infrastructure on AWS",
	Long: `Create, delete and show current status of the deployment that is running on AWS.
	Kindly ensure that terraform is installed also.`,
	Run: func(cmd *cobra.Command, args []string) {

func init() {
	// Here you will define your flags and configuration settings.

	// Cobra supports Persistent Flags which will work for this command
	// and all subcommands, e.g.:
	// awsCmd.PersistentFlags().String("foo", "", "A help for foo")

	// Cobra supports local flags which will only run when this command
	// is called directly, e.g.:
	// awsCmd.Flags().BoolP("toggle", "t", false, "Help message for toggle")
	awsCmd.Flags().BoolP(install, "i", true, "Start Kubernetes deployment on AWS")
        awsCmd.Flags().BoolP(cloud, "c", true, "Deploy Cloud Infra on AWS")


I already have the codes snippets that will perform the installation but I don’t know where I should call the flags and then insert the code with respect to the command flags.

Not to worry again,

I have discovered the solution.
