# This simple example shows how to display all active consultations

from lxml import etree
import requests

MZ_BASE_URL = "https://mamzdanie.org.pl/api/service"
MZ_API_KEY  = "b7f2a21c345317ec23452359sla2aa08"
MZ_URL      = MZ_BASE_URL + "?api_key=" + MZ_API_KEY + "&method="

method = "get_consultations&active=true"
r = requests.get(MZ_URL + method)
consultations = r.content

root = etree.fromstring(consultations)

if root.tag != "error":
        for consultation in root:
                print "Consultation:"
                for atr in consultation:
                        print " - %s: %s" % (atr.tag, atr.text)
