Hi devs,

During the last few days, I worked on a small command line interface tool [1] 
for generating starting code for application, test and board support. The idea 
came out from a discussion with Jose (@jia200x) in one of his PR [2].
Basically, this tool is meant for simplifying the bootstrap of new RIOT code, 
especially with correct copyright headers, doxygen comments, etc. I think that 
this could be handy for newcomers.

The project is in very early stage but there are already ideas for later:
- add driver code generator: with options for auto_init, netdev, etc
- integrate the tool in RIOT build system: make generate-driver, make 
generate-test, make generate-application, etc
- add tests to the tool itself ...

Maybe some of you have other ideas to improve the tool ? This is an open-source 
project, so if you think it's useful, don't hesitate to contribute !
