Converting a Maven Project to a Gradle one

Working with Android Studio means that we need to use gradle projects, however it might happen that some of our old projects were made in pure Java and with Maven, this is actually quite likely.
Converting a project from one format to another is though quite easy to be done through the command line and the built init plugin.
In particular this tool allows us to convert not just from Maven but also from grails, java and scala.
Anyway, to move from Maven to gradle we just need to:

cd project
gradle init --type pom

At this point we can import the project into Android Studio quite easily.
