How to populate a scratch org from production (or a sandbox)

This question has been asked 1 1/2 years ago (and not answered)  - but given the changes that Salesforce DX has gone through I think that it is worth to ask it again.

If you want to start using Salesforce DX with scratch orgs in an already customized environment you need an automated way to configure your scratch org to contain the same custom objects, fields, code etc. as your production or sandbox. Otherwise you cannot use the Salesforce DX process to make modifications to your existing system.

Does such a process exist? Or can you use the Salesforce DX methodology only when you start customizing an out-of-the-box org?
