General info

Rich testing framework for Go

Gocheck is a richer testing framework for Golang libraries and applications that includes checkers and assertions among many other features, it also works as an extension to the testing package and 'go test'

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

Yes, supports end-to-end testing so various front-end components can be tested

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

Yes end-to-end testing means that various back-end components and behaviour can be tested

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

Fixtures are available with Gocheck either per suite and/or per setup and teardown

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 as a suite

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

Through third party libraries like gomock

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

When testing, developers can create suites of tests
