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.

LightBDD is a BDD test framework that allows you to create easy to read and maintainable tests

LightBDD is a BDD test framework offering ability to write tests that are easy to read, easy to track during execution and are summarized in user friendly reports. It also allows developers to use all of the standard development tools to maintain them
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Kiwi is an xUnit style framework

No

No, but it is Integrated with xUnit frameworkslike NUnit, xUnit, MsTest.TestFramework and Fixie.
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can test front-end components with kiwi

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour using lightBDD
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components with kiwi

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour/functionality using lightBDD
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 through the FeatureFixture class.
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

Yes

Group fixtures are available in lightBDD through the FeatureFixture class
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.

Proprietary, Open source

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

Yes

Mocking is available through the use of third party libraries like moq
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

Yes

You can group tests into suites
