Code snippet that can be used to programmatically generate a title for node in Drupal 8.

use Drupal\Core\Form\FormStateInterface;
use Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityInterface;

 * Implements hook_form_FORM_ID_alter().
function MODULE_form_node_CONTENT_TYPE_form_alter(array &$form, FormStateInterface $form_state, $form_id) {
  //Hide the title
  $form['title']['#access'] = FALSE;
function MODULE_entity_presave(EntityInterface $entity)
  if ($entity->getEntityTypeId() == 'node') {
    if ($entity->getType() == 'article') {
      $name = $entity->get('field_name')->value;
      $lastname = $entity->get('field_lastname')->value;
      $entity->set('title', $name . ' - ' . $lastname);

I tried your code and I ran into problems. The writing remmata refers to FORM_ID_ALTER while the func refers to MODULE_form_node_CONTENT_TYPE_form_alter I changed the name of the module from MODULE to personal (it's the module I wrote). in the C.T. article I entered the name and lastname fields. When I insert a new article, the mandatory insertion of the title remains. The code $ form ['title'] ['# access'] = FALSE; does not work. I tried to change the code in $ form ['title'] ['widget'] ['0'] ['value'] ['# access'] = FALSE; but it doesn't work the same. Am I wrong?
