General info

BDD testing framework for Go

Ginkgo is a BDD testing framework for Go that has a great matcher library to go with it called Gomega and intergrates with the standard testing library

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

It is a xUnit style framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Yes, by creating unit tests then testing individual front-end components

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes by creating unit tests then testing various back-end components

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

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.

Yes

They are available by running the command: 'ginko bootstrap'

N/A

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

Dvelopers can generate mocks by using the third party package 'gomock'

You can use a third party library like mockito
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Ginkgo allows you to group tests in 'Describe' and 'Context' container blocks. It also provides 'It' and 'Specify' blocks to hold your assertions

Yes

Artos allows creation of test suites and they are run by use of a test script
