Jupyter Notebooks (http://www.jupyter.org) implement both regular and
github flavored markdown. And LaTeX support for math and stuff.


Not surprising it supports LaTex, as Jupyter notebook is a practical
"literate programming" platform, another Don Knuth concept. Combine this
with the bash kernel for jupyter (or any of the other 50+ languages it
and you can do not only a computational narrative, but you can use it to
publish a book (http://jeroenjanssens.com/2015/02/19/ibash-notebook.html),
with code and output that was actually tested. Reproducible stuff.
