Quiet down `hugo mod get`

I am trying to quiet down hugo mod get -u ./... in one of my scripts. But somehow I don’t get the --quiet flag to work.

The CLI help says this:

❯ hugo mod get --help

Resolves dependencies in your current Hugo Project.

Some examples:

Install the latest version possible for a given module:

    hugo mod get github.com/gohugoio/testshortcodes
Install a specific version:

    hugo mod get github.com/gohugoio/testshortcodes@v0.3.0

Install the latest versions of all direct module dependencies:

    hugo mod get
    hugo mod get ./... (recursive)

Install the latest versions of all module dependencies (direct and indirect):

    hugo mod get -u
    hugo mod get -u ./... (recursive)

Run "go help get" for more information. All flags available for "go get" is also relevant here.

Note that Hugo will always start out by resolving the components defined in the site
configuration, provided by a _vendor directory (if no --ignoreVendorPaths flag provided),
Go Modules, or a folder inside the themes directory, in that order.

See https://gohugo.io/hugo-modules/ for more information.

  hugo mod get [flags] [args]

  -h, --help   help for get

Global Flags:
      --clock string               set the clock used by Hugo, e.g. --clock 2021-11-06T22:30:00.00+09:00
      --config string              config file (default is hugo.yaml|json|toml)
      --configDir string           config dir (default "config")
      --debug                      debug output
  -d, --destination string         filesystem path to write files to
  -e, --environment string         build environment
      --ignoreVendorPaths string   ignores any _vendor for module paths matching the given Glob pattern
      --logLevel string            log level (debug|info|warn|error)
      --quiet                      build in quiet mode
  -s, --source string              filesystem path to read files relative from
      --themesDir string           filesystem path to themes directory
  -v, --verbose                    verbose output

But running this it seems that Hugo does not know the flag. Interesting is that it does not do the double dash, but one single dash in the flag error message?

❯ hugo mod get --quiet -u ./... 
Update module in /home/patrick/github.com/davidsneighbour/hugo-modules/modules/hooks
flag provided but not defined: -quiet
usage: go get [-t] [-u] [-v] [build flags] [packages]
Run 'go help get' for details.

Maybe I am going wrong in the order of the flags/commands? I can capture the output of the command in other ways, but from the CLI help I would expect that hugo mod get can be silenced?

With go mod get

With the exception of -h or --help as the one and only argument, all of the global flags will throw an error, regardless of their position on the command line.

Should we do something about this? Probably. Log an issue if you feel strongly about it.
