Kiwi: Simple BDD for iOS

Build Status

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.


The idea behind Kiwi is to have tests that are more readable than 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(@"has a name", ^{
            id team = [Team team];
            [[ should] equal:@"Black Hawks"];

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


The Kiwi Wiki is the official documentation source.
