General info

Quick is a Swift (and Objective-C) testing framework.

Quick is a behavior-driven development framework for Swift and Objective-C that is inspired by RSpec, Specta, and Ginkgo. Quick comes bundled with Nimble a matcher framework for your tests.

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Yes, it is an xUnit style test framework

Yes

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

Yes

Developers can test front-end behaviour and components by defining front-end feature specifications

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Developers can test back-end behaviour and components by defining back-end feature specifications

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Quick contains fixture methods setup() and teardown() for setting up and destroying test environments

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

Yes, example groups (logical groupings of examples/tests) can share setup and teardown code

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.

N/A

N/A

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

Yes, developers can create mock objects with Quick using the Cuckoo library

You can use a third party library like mockito
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

In Quick test suites are named Specs, and every test suite you create starts off with a class inheriting from QuickSpec includes a main method, spec() which contains all the test cases.

Yes

Artos allows creation of test suites and they are run by use of a test script
