General info

Crosscheck is a JavaScript unit-testing framework capable of emulating multiple browser environments

Crosscheck is an open source testing framework for verifying your in-browser JavaScript. It helps you ensure that your code will run in many different browsers such as Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox, but without needing installations of those browsers. The only thing you need is a Java Virtual Machine.

Doctest is an inbuilt test framework for Python

Doctest is a test framework that comes prepackaged with Python. It is a simple library with a functionality that makes it possible to search for pieces of text that look like interactive Python sessions and executes these sessions to see if they work exactly as shown.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

No

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

No

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

Yes

Crosscheck is used to verify in-browser JavaScript and is a headless test framework, it tests back-end components and functionality

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

No

Lacks fixture management which can make writing tests harder
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

No

Lacks fixture management
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.

Licence

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)

N/A

A good external library for using Mocks with Doctest is minimocks
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

One can group tests
