General info

Enhance PHP is a lightweight Open Source PHP unit testing framework

It has support for mocks and stubs and runs in the browser, or via the command line

Kiwi is a Behavior Driven Development library for iOS development

The goal behind Kiwi is to provide a BDD library that is simple to setup and use, and create tests that are more readable than what is possible with the bundled test framework.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

Kiwi is an xUnit style framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

It tests front-end functionality and can run in the browser

Yes

You can test front-end components with kiwi
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

N/A

Yes

You can test back-end components with kiwi
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

One is able to write fixtures in Enhance PHP

Group fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data for a group of tests (group-fixtures). This ensures specific environment for a given group of tests.

Yes

One is able to write group fixtures in Enhance PHP

Yes

kiwi has a beforeEach(aBlock) which is run before every 'it' block in all enclosed contexts. Code that sets up the particular context should go here and afterEach(aBlock) which is run after every it block in all enclosed contexts
Generators
Supports data generators for tests. Data generators generate input data for test. The test is then run for each input data produced in this way.

N/A

Yes

through the beforeAll(aBlock) and afterAll(aBlock) functions.

Mocks
Mocks are objects that simulate the behavior of real objects. Using mocks allows testing some part of the code in isolation (with other parts mocked when needed)

Yes

Enhance PHP has built-in support for mocks and stubs. You can set up expectations and supply predictable return values

Yes

Kiwi has inbuilt support for stubs and mocks,including null mocks, class mocks, protocol mocks
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can group tests into suites with Enhance PHP

Yes

Kiwi uses the block syntax in iOS to define groups of assertions and share setup state between collections of tests
