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.

Lighttest is a JavaScript unit-testing library — it works both in browsers and under Node.js, supports flow control, and is focused on keeping the tests clear.

Lighttest keeps tests clear by using a minimal syntax of the test cases, and the only testing function, lighttest.check(), is used to indicate a success or a failure. Any testing behaviour can be implemented using this function JavaScript natively meaning no additional testing API is required.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

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

No

Yes

Light Test works in the browser to test client side components and behaviours
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

Yes

Light Test works with NodeJs to test back-end environments behaviours and components in short it can test any behaviour in the back-end as well as the front-end
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

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

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)
