Cucumber vs Karate DSL: What are the differences?
What is Cucumber? Simple, human collaboration. Cucumber is a tool that supports Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) - a software development process that aims to enhance software quality and reduce maintenance costs.
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.
Cucumber and Karate DSL can be categorized as "Testing Frameworks" tools.
Cucumber and Karate DSL are both open source tools. Cucumber with 2.54K GitHub stars and 501 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Karate DSL with 2.12K GitHub stars and 526 GitHub forks.
