General info

Suitest is a freemium test automation tool specially designed for Smart/AndroidApple TV, XBOX, PlayStation4 and websites

Suitest provides the codeless visual test editor on it's platform to easily create the automation scripts without any knowledge of programming languages. You can also see the version and result history. And Test execution is pretty fast

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.

No

No, Since Suitest has a created custom framework service to test the apps on TV, Gaming consoles and website

N/A

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

Yes

Suitetest allows for testing front-end components and functionality, it is a browser automation tool after all.

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

Since it performs end-to-end testing this includes critical functionalities like database/server connections, communications and other server-side functionalities

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

N/A

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.

N/A

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

Mocks are available

Yes

Yes, developers can create mock objects with sleipnir using a third party library like Cuckoo.
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

You can create suites in suitetest

Yes

You can declare example groups with Slepnir
