    Somone on the IRC asked what the best way of blocking players from boosting themselves with arrows while flying with an elytra was and I couldn't find one already doing it.

    So here is my solution to this: A very simple Bukkit plugin that lets you block boosting yourself with arrows while gliding with an Elytra. Otherwise player can fly an infinite distance without the need to ever land by hitting themselves up/forwards with arrows and knockback bows! If you for whatever reason want to block this awesome mechanic this plugin does that in under 100 lines of code!

    There is also a permission to bypass the block and a message you can send to those who tried to hit themselves with an arrow while gliding!

    /BlockElytraArrowBoost, short /beab
    /BlockElytraArrowBoost reload - Reloads the config​

    blockelytraarrowboost.command - default: op - Gives access to the command
    blockelytraarrowboost.bypass - default: false - Gives permission to bypass the block​

    Code (Text):
    # The message to send to a user when he tries to boost himself
    # Set to an empty message to disable it!
    warningmessage: "&cBoosting yourself with arrows whily gliding with an Elytra is blocked!"
