You should add this back to the postgres wiki: it looks to be a big improvement over my rewrite: including fixing a comment bug!

Line 23 assumes that the destination schema will be a role, as do lines 69-70.

You can find my clone_schema() version which is better aligned with the original clone_schema() in that it doesn't copy the data, only structure. It also has foreign key support, but it retrains deferrable/cascade settings. It also has trigger support which you might be interested in adding.

Original source: https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Clone_schema

I've enhanced the original function with the following:

trigger support
foreign key support
Usage:

begin;
select clone_schema('schema','newschema');
commit;
NOTE: this function is only intended to copy the structure of a schema, not the data.

tks, this works well for me

This script doesn't do constraints properly. It refers back to the public schema as seen here:
-- Table: tenant5.archived_dataset_file

-- DROP TABLE tenant5.archived_dataset_file;

CREATE TABLE tenant5.archived_dataset_file
(
archived_dataset_file_id integer NOT NULL DEFAULT nextval('archived_dataset_file_archived_dataset_file_id_seq'::regclass),
name character varying(255),
dataset_id integer,
export_format_id integer,
file_reference character varying(1000),
run_time integer,
file_size integer,
date_created timestamp(6) without time zone,
owner_id integer,
CONSTRAINT archived_dataset_file_pkey PRIMARY KEY (archived_dataset_file_id),
CONSTRAINT fk_archived_reference_dataset FOREIGN KEY (dataset_id)
REFERENCES public.dataset (dataset_id) MATCH SIMPLE
ON UPDATE RESTRICT ON DELETE RESTRICT,
CONSTRAINT fk_archived_reference_export_f FOREIGN KEY (export_format_id)
REFERENCES public.export_format (export_format_id) MATCH SIMPLE
ON UPDATE RESTRICT ON DELETE RESTRICT
)
WITH (
OIDS=FALSE
);
ALTER TABLE tenant5.archived_dataset_file
