Tape

Quick

Programming language

JavaScript

Swift

Category

Unit Testing, Intergration Testing

Acceptance Testing, Unit Testing

General info

tap-producing test harness for node and browsers.

Tape API is a small superset of the node core assert module

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.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It does support xUnit output

Yes

Yes, it is an xUnit style test framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can write tests for any part of your front-end code to test any component or functionality

Yes

Developers can test front-end behaviour and components by defining front-end feature specifications
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

With tape you can test any back-end component, behaviour and functionality after all it supports TAP (Test Anything Protocol)

Yes

Developers can test back-end behaviour and components by defining back-end feature specifications
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

Tape contains only the essential features for making assertions on your code but there is a package called redtape that extends tape to give you beforeEach and afterEach functionality

Yes

Quick contains fixture methods setup() and teardown() for setting up and destroying test environments
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

Yes

Yes, example groups (logical groupings of examples/tests) can share setup and teardown code
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.

No

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)

No

Tape is a minimalistic framework that provides only essential features to make your assertions about your code

Yes

Yes, developers can create mock objects with Quick using the Cuckoo library
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Tape contains only the essential features for making assertions on your code

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.
