Maxixe

Burr Gherkins, Python's stubby little cousin to Ruby's Cucumber.

This aims to be a sane, Pythonic implementation of the gherkin style of testing in the Python language.

What's it mean?

Maxixe, also known as burr gherkin, also known as cucumis anguria is a type of small cucumber with spines. Python's kind of a thorny language compared to the feel-good do-anything langauges like Ruby, so while Ruby has the nice simple Cucumber for its testing, it makes since that Python tests with spines.

This is how you pronounce it.
