General info

Futuristic, new, fast and concurrent JavaScript test runner with simple test syntax

AVA is a test runner for Node.js with a concise API, detailed error output. JS is a single-threaded but Node.JS is a parallel due to it's async behaviour. Ava leverages that and it can run tests concurrently

Testoob is an advanced unit testing framework for Python.

Testoob integrates with existing unittest test suites. It contains many features like: a filter which tests to run with regular expressions, output test results as XML/HTML/PDF, test skipping, color output on a terminal and more.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

However Ava supports the TAP format which allows us to use the tap-xunit reporter to produce xUnit (JUnit) XML

No

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

Yes

You can write tests for the DOM with Ava, testing front-end components is easy with Ava

Yes

Testoob can test front-end features since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function that is on the client side
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Ava utilizes the async I/O nature of Node and runs concurrent tests on NodeJs applications' back-endsA node server can have its endpoints tested with Ava

Yes

Testoob can test back-end functionality since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function in the back-end.
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Using Ava's ava-fixture library it supports fixtures

Yes

TestOOB extends unittest and prepares fixtures by use of the 'setUp() function just like unittest
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

Ava has support for group fixtures

Yes

The 'setUp()' function allows you to group your initialization functions
Generators
Supports data generators for tests. Data generators generate input data for test. The test is then run for each input data produced in this way.

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)

AVA has no mocking built in, to mock functions you can use third party libraries like Sinon.js.

Yes

Mocks are available - testoob can acess library unittest.mock which is used for mocking
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

There is no support for grouping tests

Yes

One can build suites with testoob
