Steps to reproduce
I learend online that Microsoft made a neat way to convert a Chrome Extension to an Edge Extension, called the "Microsoft Edge Extension Toolkit".
There is a Google Chrome Time Management Extension that I’d like to port to Microsoft Edge. I tried for about an hour today to do so, but was unable to.
I would alwyas get an "Error: Could not parse manifest. Ensure manifest.json is a well formed…", but the manifest is definatley a well-formed json file, ensured with online well-formed json checkers.
Here is the Extension I was trying to port:
I attached the relavant manifest.json file (renamed to manifestOriginal.json). manifest.json is an edited version where I manualy tried to conform it to the Microsoft Edge Extension Syntax, but it also failed.
If anyone could help me that would be greatly appreciated :)

Can you also include the extension’s source files and attach it to this bug report? Please zip the folder containing the code before uploading.
The Microsoft Edge Extension Toolkit requires a copy of the Chrome extension’s source code.
Thanks for the quick reply Steve :)
I really appreciate it, and it give me a lot of hope for this.
I’ve reinstalled a clean version of the add-on in Google Chrome, and attached its source files in a .zip file to this Bug Report.
