General info

Enhance PHP is a lightweight Open Source PHP unit testing framework

It has support for mocks and stubs and runs in the browser, or via the command line

Unitils is an open source library whose goal is to make unit and integration testing easy and maintainable.

Unitils is divided into modules, each of them providing support for a certain aspect of your unit and integration tests. For example if you need mocking for your tests, just include unitils-mock as a dependency, If you would also want to load DbUnit data sets, just include unitils-dbunit
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

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

Yes

Yes

You can perform unit tests on various components and functionality that make up the front-end
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

N/A
