Meta gem containing Shoulda Context and Shoulda Matchers

Shoulda contains two other gems: Should Context and Shoulda Matchers. Should Context allows better naming and grouping of your tests. Shoulda Matchers provides a set of "matchers", i.e. methods that allow you to write much more concise assertions.
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

Yes, since it is also easily hooked to 'testing' package it is used to test front-end components

N/A

Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes it can also be used to test back-end components and functionality

N/A

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

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Using the 'suite' package developers can build a test suite as a struct build teardown and setup methods as well as testing methods on the struct then run them with 'go test'
