django-cloneable provides a CloneableMixin class that has a clone() method. It can be mixed into any Django model.

The clone() method must be called on an already saved instance (one that has pk set). It then returns a new instance of the model that has all the same field values as the original instance, but it will be a seperate database row with a distinct primary key.

An example:

.. code:: python

from django.db import models
from django_cloneable import CloneableMixin

class Ingredient(CloneableMixin, models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
    is_spicy = models.BooleanField(default=False)

class Pizza(CloneableMixin, models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
    price = models.IntegerField()
    ingredients = models.ManyToManyField(Ingredient)

tomatos = Ingredient.objects.create(name='Tomato', is_spicy=False)
cheese = Ingredient.objects.create(name='Cheese', is_spicy=False)
chili = Ingredient.objects.create(name='Chili', is_spicy=True)

margarita = Pizza.objects.create(name='Margarita')
margarita.ingredients.add(tomatos)
margarita.ingredients.add(cheese)

diabolo = margarita.clone(attrs={'name': 'Diabolo'})
diabolo.ingerdients.add(chili)

# Nothing has changed on the original instance.
assert margarita.name == 'Margarita'
assert margarita.ingredients.all() == [tomatos, cheese]

# The original m2m values were copied, and the new values were added.
assert diabolo.name == 'Diabolo'
assert diabolo.ingredients.all() == [tomatos, cheese, chili]

As shown in the example, you can provide the attrs that shall be replaced in the cloned object. That lets you change the cloned instance before it gets saved. By default the clone will be saved to the database, so that it has pk when it gets returned.

There are numerous hooks on how you can modify the cloning logic. The best way to learn about them is to have a look at the implementation of CloneableMixin.
