Unit Testing

General info

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.

It's a property based testing framework written in typescript

Fast-check provides another way to test programs by using property testing, Property testing is a way to test functionality by automatically generating many different inputs. This means Instead of relying on hard-coded inputs and outputs, it checks characteristics of the output given the whole range of possible inputs
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Kiwi is an xUnit style framework

N/A

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

Yes

You can test front-end components with kiwi

Yes

It can test 'units' of front-end code for functionality and behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components with kiwi

Yes

It is a unit testing framework in essence and can test back-end functionality and behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

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

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

N/A

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.

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

Kiwi has inbuilt support for stubs and mocks,including null mocks, class mocks, protocol mocks

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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