There are easier tools to deal with them like:

(They are not cross compatible)
gufw/ufw with iptables
firewalld with nftables

gufw can be used with nftables through iptables backward compatibility called iptables-nft (though for the future its recommended against to have any iptables stuff to begin with)

This thread isn’t about having compatible front-ends with nftables, but making sure iptables rulesets are still compatible going forward and researching programs that can transform these older rulesets into something that is 100% equivalent in nft
