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.

BDD testing framework for Go

Ginkgo is a BDD testing framework for Go that has a great matcher library to go with it called Gomega and intergrates with the standard testing library
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

No

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

Yes, by creating unit tests then testing individual 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

Yes by creating unit tests then testing various back-end components
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

Yes

They are available by running the command: 'ginko bootstrap'

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

Yes

Dvelopers can generate mocks by using the third party package 'gomock'
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

Ginkgo allows you to group tests in 'Describe' and 'Context' container blocks. It also provides 'It' and 'Specify' blocks to hold your assertions
