I have a bunch of layers and corresponding SLD's running a WMS service. I was exploring the possibility of shifting to a TileMill's tile based TMS service.

For this, I would like if it were possible to convert the SLD to CartoCSS, and then start the styling from that point on in tilemill.

Is there a SLD to Carto CSS?

I have seen the question Are there tools to directly import QGIS projects into Tilemill?, but the answers there really do not answer my question.

It's almost 2016, and Mapbox has renamed their old product as Mapbox Studio Classic. However, I'm still looking for a way to convert SLDs to CSS, so that we can convert old SLDs to CSS for conversion projects.

Are there any findings from your side on this matter? What did you end up using? – Germán Carrillo Jun 24 '15 at 17:08
@gcarrillo: We ended up writing the CartoCSS from scratch. It didn't take that long, and our designer was more happy writing the CSS, than he ever was fiddling around with the XML. – Devdatta Tengshe Jun 25 '15 at 4:22
@iant: Closing a question, because there is no answer feels totally incorrect. This question could be answered by something as simple as 'Currently there is no way of doing this' Just closing this does not seem contribute in anyway. – Devdatta Tengshe Dec 23 '15 at 6:25
we're trying to cut down on the unanswered question count, there is currently no good answer but feel free to add your answer and accept it and I'll reopen – iant Dec 23 '15 at 8:42
closing questions which do not have an answer just to bump down the un-answered metric is pointless at best, and disingenuous at worst. – Devdatta Tengshe Dec 23 '15 at 16:15
