General info

Buster.JS is a JavaScript test framework for node and browsers.

Buster.JS is a new JavaScript testing framework. It does browser testing by automating test runs in actual browsers (think JsTestDriver), as well as Node.js testing. It has a bunch of great features.

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Buster.Js is a xUnit style Test Framework

Yes

It is a xUnit style framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

It does browser testing with browser automation, QUnit style static HTML page testing, testing in headless browsers and more front-end components and functionality

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

It is a Node.js testing toolkit as well which means it can test back-end behaviour and functionality as well as run in a server environment

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

N/A

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.

N/A

N/A

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)

Buster.JS ships with Sinon.JS. every test in a test case has a sandbox associated with it, making it easy to mock and stub

You can use a third party library like mockito
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Artos allows creation of test suites and they are run by use of a test script
