Grafoscopio: A Moldable Tool for Literate Computing 

Grafoscopio  is a moldable tool to make reproducible research and literate computing, developed on Pharo live coding and computing integrated environment, which allow authors to intertwine prose, code, data and agile visualizations into storytelling, and readers and coauthors can verify, collaborate on and extend the document claims and artifacts.
Grafoscopio is and integrates simple and self-contained "pocket infrastructures", that can be execute On/Off-line, from a USB thumb drive, a raspberry-Pi like computer, a modest server or any hardware in between and beyond and tries to blur binary constructs like author / lector, developer / user, document / data, binary application / source code, and has an associated permanent workshop+hackathon, called the Data Week, where diverse participants learn, extend and modify Grafoscopio, while dealing with civic issues that can be understood and expressed better using the techniques provided by literate computing and reproducible research.
