Kiwi - iOS Testing With Style

I’m very passionate about writing tests to ensure code quality and achieve better software design. When I started iOS development one of the first things I did was evaluating testing frameworks for iOS.

How it started out…

It didn’t take long to setup GHUnit, OCMock and OCHamcrest. This combination allows unit testing, mocking and provides a better assertion syntax. I was very excited and tweeted about it. On this tweet I got a very interesting reply from my friend Maxim:

This made me curios. I started using Kiwi for my recent iOS project and fell more and more in love with it.


In the following video I give a brief introduction to Kiwi and what makes it so special. It was captured during one of our 5-Minutes-of-Fame talks at Wooga.
