General info

Atoum is a unit testing framework specific to the PHP language

Atoum is similar to SimpleTest and is designed to be implemented rapidly, simplify test development and allow for writing reliable, readable, and clear unit tests

Teenytest is a simple, zero-config test runner for NodeJS

Teenytest's CLI will run tests with zero public-API and zero configuration
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

It supports xUnit output
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Autom can perform unit tests on various front-end components and behaviours

No

Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Autom can perform unit tests on servers/back-end components

Yes

Teenytest tests database connections and other server-side components and behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

By using the 'given()' method to setup your environment

Yes

It provides fixtures with the methods beforeAll(),afterEach() and afterAll()beforeAll() creates the browser and gives you a newPage() globalafterEach() will close any pages you created with newPage()afterAll() closes the browser
Group fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data for a group of tests (group-fixtures). This ensures specific environment for a given group of tests.

Yes

By using the 'given()' method to setup your environments

Mocks
Mocks are objects that simulate the behavior of real objects. Using mocks allows testing some part of the code in isolation (with other parts mocked when needed)

Yes

By use of autom mocks which are decoupled and easier to maintain

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

By use of an extension for autom called blackfire which allows you to write blackfire test suites.

Yes

Grouping is supported through nested tests in which any object can contain any combination of hooks, test functions, and additional sub-test objects.
