General info

Fuchu is functional test library for F# / C# / VB.NET

Fuchu is a test library for .NET, that supports C# and VB.NET but with a special focus on F#. It draws heavily from Haskell's test-framework and HUnit.

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.

No

N/A

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

Yes

You can test front-end components by testing individual front-end classes and modules

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 test back-end components by testing individual back-end classes and modules

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

It can do TestFixtureSetups (SetUp/TearDown), but not TestFixtureTearDowns (not unless you treat that test suite separately)

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.

Yes

Group fixtures are available in Fuchu

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)

Yes

You can create mock objects using the third party library moq

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can organize tests in suites and give them names
