I think what you're probably asking about is converting the MODX file to the JSON file that identifies the extension and a converter for this is simply not useful. All that the json file contains is information about the extension so you could easily enter that yourself and you should. We might develop a simple tool to generate the json file after you fill in some fields but that idea hasn't been taken up yet.

If you can't write a simple JSON, you can't code an extension anyway ;).

I don't mean you personally. I mean people in general.
