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'

xUnit.net is aUnit testing framework for C# and .NET

xUnit.net is a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for the .NET Framework. It is used to test C#, F#, VB.NET and other .NET languages. xUnit.net and works with ReSharper, CodeRush, TestDriven.NET and Xamarin. It is part of the .NET Foundation,
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

xUnit.net is part of the xUnit family of frameworks
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

You can test various front-end components independently since it is a Unit testing framework
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

You can test various back-end components independently since it is a Unit testing framework
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

Yes

It contains class fixtures which are setup once pertest class
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

Yes

xUnit.net contains collection fixtures which allow you to share context among many tests
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.
