Add a helper (plugin) for easy setup.

Many possible new users hear you need to create Batch/script files and turn away from programs requiring this.
They feel it is too much like programming for them to devote the time to even test.
I was using HA-Bridge (a opensource program) to do my Alexa control. It has several helpers (plugins) to allow users of various Home Automation software's with an API to easily pull their configured devices into a json file. This greatly simplified setup of those devices.
Many of those plugins now have there own Google/ Alexaskills but it I believe generated much more interest in HA-Bridge.
Would it be possible to implement something like this in a future update?
I know it would attract many HomeGenie users as it doesn't have a dedicated skill for either Alexa or Google.
