A new tool may help you with Drupal 8, Drupal console:
The Drupal Console is a suite of tools run from a command line interface (CLI) to generate boilerplate code and interact with a Drupal 8 installation. From the ground up, it has been built to utilize the same modern PHP practices which were introduced in Drupal 8.
Drupal Console provides a number of commands for creating module scaffolding and boilerplate code. For any command, you will be asked a series of questions about what you want to generate. Based on that user interaction, it will then generate the required boilerplate to build the requested component.
