A modern way to perform the analysis that LEfSe does?

Given the developments and increased access to machine learning algorithms such as LDA that have happened since LEfSe was developed, is there now a way to perform the same analysis with standard tools?

The LEfSe code base is in pretty primitive python 2.7 and is not even organized as a package--just a collection of scripts. You can use the Galaxy interface provided by the Huttenhower lab, but I seem to run into problems when using covariates.

I cloned LEfSe from bitbucket and tried running the example script and threw errors. The repository doesn't have a place to raise issues. I plan to email the author.

Is there a simple way to do the same analysis that LEfSe does with stock packages, but without having to delve into the original paper and re-implement on my own?
