Global Flags

There are some instances where you might want to define a flag once for all of your commands. In this case you can add a global flag to an abstract base Command class. For example,

import { Command, Flags } from '@oclif/core';

export abstract class BaseCommand extends Command {
static baseFlags = {
interactive: Flags.boolean({
char: 'i',
description: 'Run command in interactive mode',

Any command that extends BaseCommand will now have an --interactive flag on it.
