Project Largo is a WordPress starter/parent theme developed by the Investigative News Network. Sound interesting? Check out our code on Github or get in touch to setup a demo.

Largo incorporates a number of features from NPR's Project Argo but has been significantly expanded to include a number of additional features to make it easier to set up and more flexible to better support the needs of a variety of news publishers.

Status: We now have over 20 INN member sites and over 30 non-member sites using Largo and we're continuing to improve the platform every day! Drop us a note if you'd like to receive updates on our progress or are interested in contributing code to the project.
