General info

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.

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

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

Yes

Turnip can perform end-to-end tests therefore test front-end components and functionality

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Turnip is used to test server-side behaviour and components

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

N/A

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

N/A

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

Licence

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 intergrating with RSpec turnip has access to the rspec-mocks gem

You can use a third party library like mockito
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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

Yes

Artos allows creation of test suites and they are run by use of a test script
