General info

Fixie is a .NET test framework similar to NUnit and xUnit

Fixie allows test methods to be created and executed like other test frameworks, but takes a takes a conventions-based approach, which is a benefit as we do not need to use attributes to mark classes and methods as tests

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.

Yes

fixie is an xUnit type testing framework

N/A

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

Yes

You can unit test front-end components of youra pplications with fixie

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

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

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

Yes

Yes, fixie has fixture methods for setting up tests and at the end of tests to destroy them

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)

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can group tests into suites
