Karate DSL vs Chakram: What are the differences?

What is Karate DSL? Open Source Web-Services Test Automation Framework. Combines API test-automation, mocks and performance-testing into a single, unified framework. The BDD syntax popularized by Cucumber is language-neutral, and easy for even non-programmers. Besides powerful JSON & XML assertions, you can run tests in parallel for speed - which is critical for HTTP API testing.

What is Chakram? A REST API testing framework. It is a REST API testing framework offering a BDD testing style and fully exploiting promises. It allows you to write clear and comprehensive tests, ensuring JSON REST endpoints work correctly as you develop and in the future.

Karate DSL and Chakram are primarily classified as "Testing Frameworks" and "API" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Karate DSL are:

  • Native support for both JSON and XML
  • Powerful payload assertions with "deep-equals"
  • Data-driven testing

On the other hand, Chakram provides the following key features:

  • Status codes
  • Cookie presence and value
  • Header presence and value

Karate DSL is an open source tool with 2.41K GitHub stars and 608 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Karate DSL's open source repository on GitHub.
