Quick is a behavior-driven development framework for Swift and Objective-C. Inspired by RSpec, Specta, and Ginkgo.

// Swift

import Quick import Nimble

class TableOfContentsSpec: QuickSpec { override func spec() { describe("the 'Documentation' directory") { it("has everything you need to get started") { let sections = Directory("Documentation").sections expect(sections).to(contain("Organized Tests with Quick Examples and Example Groups")) expect(sections).to(contain("Installing Quick")) }

  context("if it doesn't have what you're looking for") {
    it("needs to be updated") {
      let you = You(awesome: true)

} }


Quick comes together with Nimble — a matcher framework for your tests. You can learn why

statements make your expectations unclear and how to fix that using Nimble assertions here.
