Acceptance Testing

General info

Spinach is a BDD framework on top of Gherkin

Spinach is a high-level BDD framework that leverages the Gherkin language to help define executable specifications of your application or library's acceptance criteria.

Gauge is a light-weight cross-platform test automation tool for writing acceptance tests.

Gauge is a free and open source framework for writing and running acceptance tests. Some of its key features include: -Simple, flexible and rich syntax based on Markdown.; -Consistent cross platform/language support for writing test code.; -A modular architecture with plugins support.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

N/A

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test front-end behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test any server-side behaviour with Spinach

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test back-end behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

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.

No

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

Spinach has inbuilt generator methods

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

Spinach can access the rspec-mocks methods

Yes

You can create mocks using third party libraries like moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Spinach Integrates with your RSpec test suite which allows declaring example groups and contexts.

Yes

You can create test suites with Gauge which can be run using multiple parameters.
