Javascript BDD (Behaviour Driven Development) based test runner/framework

Contextualised spec runner for JavaScript in the flavour of RSpec (Ruby Spec runner). JSSpec has got 2 really powerful features which helps you to make unit testing easier: 1) Shared examples 2) Shared contexts
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

You can test front-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test front-end behaviour

Yes

JSSpec is primarily used for testing front-end/client-side components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test back-end behaviour

No

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)

Yes

You can create mocks using third party libraries like moq

Yes

It has a module doubles (mocks/spies) for mocking and spying
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can create test suites with Gauge which can be run using multiple parameters.
