In order to make filtering easier, you can provide `Feed` with a function determining what entries are selected:
entries = picot.feed.Feed(url, filter_func=lambda x: x['title'].startswith('How to'))

It provides with a formatting function, defining how entries are represented:
entries = picot.feed.Feed(url, format_func=lambda x: '{} {}'.format(x['title'], x['link']))

### As a command

While intended to be used as a library, Picot can be invoked as a command line tool to get the titles of the entries in an RSS:
