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.

Testoob is an advanced unit testing framework for Python.

Testoob integrates with existing unittest test suites. It contains many features like: a filter which tests to run with regular expressions, output test results as XML/HTML/PDF, test skipping, color output on a terminal and more.
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

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

Yes

Testoob can test front-end features since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function that is on the client side
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Turnip is used to test server-side behaviour and components

Yes

Testoob can test back-end functionality since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function 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

No

Yes

TestOOB extends unittest and prepares fixtures by use of the 'setUp() function just like unittest
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

The 'setUp()' function allows you to group your initialization functions
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

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

Yes

Mocks are available - testoob can acess library unittest.mock which is used for mocking
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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

Yes

One can build suites with testoob
