# initialize Mapper class with your key
mapper = AltdgAPI('domain-mapper', api_key='f816b9125492069f7f2e3b1cc60659f0')

# single query
print(mapper.query('abc.com'))

# single query with hint
print(mapper.query('abc.com', hint='news'))

# bulk query
print(mapper.bulk_query(['yahoo.com', 'amazon.com']))

# bulk query with same hint for all inputs
print(mapper.bulk_query(['yahoo.com', 'amazon.com'], hint='company'))

# bulk query with overwriting hint
print(mapper.bulk_query([
    ('purple mint', 'restaurant'),  # (input, hint) tuple
    'amazon',  # just input with base hint
], hint='company'))  # base hint
