Fields-wise types cloning. Nothing more, nothing less.

// PartialEq and Debug traits are only required for `assert` macros in the example.
#[derive(PartialEq, Debug, CloneFields)]
struct Original<'a, T> {
    field1: &'a i64,
    field2: T,
    nested: OriginalNested,

#[derive(PartialEq, Debug, CloneFields)]

struct OriginalNested {
    value: i32,

// S2 might be a *foreign* type, i.e. declared in a different crate.
struct External<'a, T> {
    field1: &'a i64,
    field2: T,
    nested: ExternalNested,

struct ExternalNested {
    value: i32,

// This struct only exists for the sake of using `destinations` attribute with more than one
// type :)
struct ExternalNested2 {
    value: i32,

fn main() {
    let obj: Original<_> = Original {
        field1: &0,
        field2: String::from("lol"),
        nested: OriginalNested { value: 15 }
    let cloned: External<_> = obj.clone_into();
    assert_eq!(obj.field1, cloned.field1);
    assert_eq!(obj.field2, cloned.field2);
    assert_eq!(obj.nested.value, cloned.nested.value);
    let cloned2 = Original::clone_from(&cloned);
    assert_eq!(cloned.field1, cloned2.field1);
