Flowdock
clone() public

Returns a clone of the resource that hasn’t been assigned an id yet and is treated as a new resource.

  ryan = Person.find(1)
  not_ryan = ryan.clone
  not_ryan.new?  # => true

Any active resource member attributes will NOT be cloned, though all other attributes are. This is to prevent the conflict between any prefix_options that refer to the original parent resource and the newly cloned parent resource that does not exist.

  ryan = Person.find(1)
  ryan.address = StreetAddress.find(1, :person_id => ryan.id)
  ryan.hash = {:not => "an ARes instance"}

  not_ryan = ryan.clone
  not_ryan.new?            # => true
  not_ryan.address         # => NoMethodError
  not_ryan.hash            # => {:not => "an ARes instance"}
