Easy way to open Jira edit issue modal?

Is there an easy way via code to open the Jira edit issue modal from a plugin? I understand there is a modal component in Atlaskit and AUI but do I have to replicate all the editing of the fields etc?
Thanks heaps,

Would love to know the answer as well. Also, it would be just amazingly useful for many developers to be able to have Issue View (like in filters and boards) as a component.
