General info

BDD style testing framework for Go

Goconvey is a two pronged testing tool consisting of a test runner that watches your code for changes, runs 'go test' and renders your results in a web browser and the second a library that allows you to write BDD-style tests with standard 'go test' functions

D.O.H means Dojo Objective Harness, it's a test framework for the DOJO web apps which tests and runs on the browser and on cloud test execution services like Browserstack

Dojo is a Typescript framework build for modern web application, and D.O.H is a basically unit test library to test JavaScript functions and custom widgets
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, Goconvey can perform front-end tests

Yes

DOH is both flexible and extendable and runs in many environments including many browsers to test various front-end functionalities and components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes one can perform end-to-end HTTP tests with goconvey to see how an application works against remote servers

Yes

Pieces of back-end code can be tested with DOH as it performs Unit tests. It is flexible enough to test server-side behaviour and functionality
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Yes, Goconvey uses scopes to define fixtures and a reset function for teardown

It has various fixture methods like setUp(), tearDown() and Performance test fixtures which are just like a regular test fixtures, but with extra options. Specifically, it uses 'testType' to mark it as a "perf" test, which instructs the D.O.H. runner to treat the tests as performance and use the calibrate and execute test runner
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

One can define group fixtures using scopes

Yes

It supports group fixtures
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

The web UI has a button to open the built in generator

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

Goconvey License

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

Using the mock package or mockery library to autogenerate mock code

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Similar to a table driven approach an entire suite can be contained in a single function

Yes

There is a function that allows you to group tests, the 'doh.register(...)' function. It's most commonly used for registering Unit Tests
