I’ve created a forked version of the popular WordPress Plugin Boilerplate. This new version uses a python script/GUI that completely automates the renaming of every file, every function, and every class name. No more missing a file name or function to match your new plugin name.
Check out the README and follow the instructions on the repo to get started. Questions, comments, feature requests are all welcomed.
