Unit Testing

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.

A Unit Testing framework focused on simplicity

This is a Unit test framwork especially designed for the React.JS, Babel, TypeScript, Node, React, Angular and Vue projects. It usually worked with Enzyme(Integration testing)
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

You can easily test methods, properties, UI element actions and other front-end functionalities
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

Back-end server behaviour also can be tested with Jest much in the same way as the front-end tests.
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

Yes

Fixtures are supported, Jest has many helper functions such as: BeforeEach and afterEach If you have some work you need to do repeatedly for many tests, beforeAll and afterAll if you only need to do setup once, at the beginning of a file.
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

Yes

Jest supports group fixtures
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.

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

Jest uses a custom resolver for imports in your tests making it simple to mock any object outside of your test’s scope. You can use mocked imports with the rich Mock Functions API to spy on function calls with readable test syntax.
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

You can declare as many test suites as you want. Grouping of tests together is done using a describe block
