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

QUnit is a JS Unit testing framework.

QUnit is especially useful for regression testing of jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile projects
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

Yes, it is a xUnit style framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Yes, Goconvey can perform front-end tests

Yes

QUnit is commonly used by jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile It can test front-end 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

Qunit can test any JavaScript code(including itself), this includes server-side components and functionality. Supports NodeJs
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 the qunit-fixture element which is a container for some HTML that your tests can assert against.
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

You can group fixtures together with QUnit
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

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

You can use third party libraries like jQuery's Mockjax plugin
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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

Yes

You can use the QUnit.module() function to group tests together
