BDD for iOS

Simple BDD for iOS

Kiwi is a Behavior Driven Development library for iOS development. The goal is to provide a BDD library that is exquisitely simple to setup and use.

Ping us at @alding or @lukeredpath and let us know what you are using Kiwi for.

Requirements:

  • Xcode 4.x
  • LLVM compiler recommended

Why?

The idea behind Kiwi is to have tests that are more readable that what is possible with the bundled test framework.

Tests (or rather specs) are written in Objective-C and run within the comfort of Xcode to provide a test environment that is as unobtrusive and seamless as possible in terms of running tests and error reporting.

Specs look like this:

describe(@"Team", ^{
    context(@"when newly created", ^{
        it(@"should have a name", ^{
            id team = [Team team];
            [[team.name should] equal:@"Black Hawks"];
        });

        it(@"should have 11 players", ^{
            id team = [Team team];
            [[[team should] have:11] players];
        });
    });
});

To some of you, this might seem like an abomination. To the rest, read on...
