No “Drag and Drop” Flutter Development Yet

Copy and paste in the editor works, and the rapid code-test-recode, along with a visual grids and “tool-tip” looking info in your running prototype, brings the format tweeting in from the prototype side.  In the long run it might be a better approach … but it requires any Flutter developer to have some coding skills to accomplish anything, which is not always the case in some development systems.
