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.

Sleipnir is a BDD-style framework for Swift

Sleipnir is a pure Swift BDD testing framework inspired by cedar, that is not dependent on NSObject, and does not use XCTest. Sleipnir has nice command line output and support for custom test reporters and other features, like seeded random tests invocation, focused and excluded examples/groups
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

N/A

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 test front-end behaviour by defining specifications for classes, objects and functions
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 test back-end behaviour by defining specifications for classes, objects and functions in the back-end
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 available by using beforeEach{ } and afterEach{ } to setup the test parameters
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

Group fixtures are available through the beforeAll{} and afterAll{} blocks to setup 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

Yes

Yes, developers can create mock objects with sleipnir using a third party library like Cuckoo.
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 example groups with Slepnir
