Converting mootool to jquery

Does anyone know how if there is a converter to do this?

I need to convert the code as mootool and jquery don't seem to want to work together on my page.

Any help will be appreciated.

Nearly forgot: this is the code

var isExtended = 0;
var height = 165;
var width = 240;
var slideDuration = 1000;
var opacityDuration = 1500;

function extendContract(){
if(isExtended == 0){
sideBarSlide(0, height, 0, width);
sideBarOpacity(0, 1);
isExtended = 1;
sideBarSlide(height, 0, width, 0);
sideBarOpacity(1, 0);
isExtended = 0;
function sideBarSlide(fromHeight, toHeight, fromWidth, toWidth){
var myEffects = new Fx.Styles('sideBarContents', {duration: slideDuration, transition: Fx.Transitions.linear});
'height': [fromHeight, toHeight],
'width': [fromWidth, toWidth]
function sideBarOpacity(from, to){
var myEffects = new Fx.Styles('sideBarContents', {duration: opacityDuration, transition: Fx.Transitions.linear});
'opacity': [from, to]
function init(){
$('sideBarTab').addEvent('click', function(){extendContract()});
isExtended = 1;
window.addEvent('load', function(){init()});

After my system malfunctioned last night and I lost the full working copy of my project I set to redo all the work I have done in the last 7 days. Bummer!

I'm posting this in case anyone happens upon my post looking for a solution to the same problem I had. It's all about learning and teaching.

So as I was not able to work my head around converting mootools I set it aside and went out looking for another option.

function showHide(obj) {
var div = document.getElementById(obj);
if (div.style.display == 'none') {
div.style.display = '';
else {
div.style.display = 'none';

<a class="#*$!" href="#" onclick="showHide('hidden');"></a>

And now my box open and closes on demand, the script is lighter and I have gotten rid of my mootool headache.
