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

JS Unit test framework, BDD based for Node.JS applications used with Angular.JS web applications and also paired with 'Karma' task runner

It's a BDD (Behavior Driven Development) test framework for JavaScript especially designed for manual QAs to understand the automation tests. It does not depend on the any JavaScript framework or browser. So it's very well suited for Node.js projects and websites
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

Jasmine works well in and with browsers to test client-side components and functionality
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

Jasmine works with NodeJs to test its back-end components and behaviour
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

Yes

By using 'jasmine-fixture' which can help write specs that interact with the DOM making it easier to injectHTML fixtures
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

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

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

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

By using a a plugin called jasmine-ajax that allows ajax calls to be mocked out in tests
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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

Yes

Using the describe function which is for grouping related tests, typically each test file has one at the top level.
