I'm actually quite relieved you said that.
As much as it's fun to make stuff happen in Cookbook, I feel it's waaay too instant-gratification and goes against the very point of something like Flotilla.
You'll be pleased to know that I've been working on features to support more permanent saving/loading/sharing of pools so they can be shared, and we're definitely keen to create more Rockpool-focussed tutorials.
I also have Node-Red on my radar, it's clear people want it, and need to investigate Scratch again- our original plans for Scratch were incredibly ambitious, and a lot has changed in the Raspberry Pi version of Scratch since Flotilla began.
As a fall-back plan to support Flotilla, and our other boards, I actually wrote a whole framework called ScratchIO (https://github.com/gadgetoid/scratchio) for getting stuff connected to Scratch with a more meaningful gammer, and a more modular approach. Unfortunately Scratch totally changed, so I've got a lot of homework to do.
Thanks for your feedback. I'll make sure the right points get to the right people!
