Under the hood

There are 10 Mouse Regions and listeners (All sides and corners + The big one in the middle + the draggable) that change the look of the mouse according to their function. Windows can be clicked on in any of these regions to become selected (put on top).

There is an InheritedWidget called Panels which is created by a StatefulWidget called PanelsManager. The children of the panels manager are put into a stack. To add Panels/Windows one can simply do Panels.of(context).addPanel(widget: Widget, title: "Title of Panel"); to create one from any Widget from anywhere in a context that is a decendant of the PanelsManager (Panels).

Please see the examples directory for an example.
