N/A

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

Yes

You can unit test back-end components of your applications with csUnit

Yes

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

Yes

csUnit has fixture methods such as setup and teardown methods

No

Group fixtures

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)

You can write your own mock objects manually

Yes

Spinach can access the rspec-mocks methods
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

It contains recipes for combining several test assemblies into one test suite

Yes

Spinach Integrates with your RSpec test suite which allows declaring example groups and contexts.
