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.

QUnit is a JS Unit testing framework.

QUnit is especially useful for regression testing of jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile projects
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Kiwi is an xUnit style framework

Yes

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

Yes

You can test front-end components with kiwi

Yes

QUnit is commonly used by jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile It can test front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components with kiwi

Yes

Qunit can test any JavaScript code(including itself), this includes server-side components and functionality. Supports NodeJs
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

By using the qunit-fixture element which is a container for some HTML that your tests can assert against.
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

You can group fixtures together with QUnit
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

You can use third party libraries like jQuery's Mockjax plugin
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 use the QUnit.module() function to group tests together
