General info

Rich testing framework for Go

Gocheck is a richer testing framework for Golang libraries and applications that includes checkers and assertions among many other features, it also works as an extension to the testing package and 'go test'

Turnip is a Gherkin extension for RSpec

xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Yes, supports end-to-end testing so various front-end components can be tested

Yes

Turnip can perform end-to-end tests therefore test front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes end-to-end testing means that various back-end components and behaviour can be tested

Yes

Turnip is used to test server-side behaviour and components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Fixtures are available with Gocheck either per suite and/or per setup and teardown

No

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

Group fixtures are available as a suite

No

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

No

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

Through third party libraries like gomock

Yes

By intergrating with RSpec turnip has access to the rspec-mocks gem
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

When testing, developers can create suites of tests

Yes

Turnip Integrates directly into your RSpec test suite which allows declaring example groups and contexts.
