I see nftables is available via apk and I'd like to replace iptables with nftables. Before I replace iptables with nftables, I'm wondering if anyone has already been through the process? I'm assuming the following steps would work? I'll be logged in locally.

1. rc-update del iptables
2. apk add nftables
3. rc-update add nftables
4. Rewrite rules using nft
5. /etc/init.d/nftables save
6. reboot

Is it that easy?

I don't think you need to re-write your rules.
If your netfilter rules where loaded with iptables, and you haven't flushed them, you should be able to save them with nftables (nft list ruleset)
