I just ran across Stencila, which claims to be “the office suite for reproducible research”:

The calls for research to be transparent and reproducible have never been louder. But today’s tools for reproducible research can be intimidating - especially if you’re not a coder. We’re building software for reproducible research with the intuitive, visual interfaces that you and your colleagues are used to.

Something like this is desperately needed, but adoption will be an uphill battle. Academics are often still reluctant to use Google Docs instead of emailing Word files back and forth, and making this switch would save everyone a huge amount of time.
