For something like that to work, you would need to have it built in with the
theme, or use a plugin that comes with it's own templating system, like
Flutter does.

The reason something like that can't currently be integrated into WordPress

you don't have standard page elements like post_title, post_content, which
you could manipulate with javascript.

A theme framework that would offer inline editing would be reallly
