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

JasUnit is a slim unit testing framework for JavaScript, following the general design principles of xUnit.

For testing your code, JasUnit allows you to: Create test fixtures with any number of test methods; Implement setup() and teardown() methods which are run before and after each test; Specify a namespace for a fixture for easy organisation of tests; Use the default or custom logger (default appends results to a given element); Use assertions from any scope - this isn't necessary or even really advised, but some people prefer it.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

JasUnit follows the general design principles o xUnit
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Yes, Goconvey can perform front-end tests

Yes

JasUnit is primarily used to test front-end code 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

No

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

With JasUnit you can Create test fixtures with any number of test methods Implement setup() and teardown() methods which are run before and after each test
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

JasUnit allow you to create 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

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

Yes

It provides inbuilt Mocking capabilities
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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