General info

TickSpec is a lightweight Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) framework for .Net

With TickSpeck you can describe behaviour in plain text using the Gherkin business language, execute the behaviour against matching F# 'ticked' methods, or attribute-tagged C# or F# methods, run via your normal test runners or plugins and set breakpoints in the scenarios, step definitions or your code and go (setting breakpoints in the Gherkin is currently not supported in .NET Standard version)

Turnip is a Gherkin extension for RSpec

Turnip is an open source Ruby gem that provides a platform for acceptance tests.It combines Gherkin, a language defined by the Cucumber Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) tool to express requirements, and RSpec, an open source BDD tool for Ruby developers.
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

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour by creating feature specifications for front-end behaviour

Yes

Turnip can perform end-to-end tests therefore test front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end code by creating feature specifications to test back-end behaviour

Yes

Turnip is used to test server-side behaviour and components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Fixtures are available or are derived from the class FeatureFixture

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.

Yes

TickSpec contains group fixtures

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.

N/A

No

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

By using a third party mocking library like moq

Yes

By intergrating with RSpec turnip has access to the rspec-mocks gem
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can create test suites with TickSpec

Yes

Turnip Integrates directly into your RSpec test suite which allows declaring example groups and contexts.
