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

wru is an essential general purpose test framework compatible with web environment, node.js, Rhino, and now PhantomJS too.

wru is compatible with basically all possible browsers out there included IE5.5, IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Webkit based, Mobile Browsers, and Opera. On server side wru is compatible with latest node.js, Rhino, PhantomJS, and JavaScriptCore versions.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

Wru is compatible with xUnit
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Yes, Goconvey can perform front-end tests

Yes

Wru tests front-end components and functions, it is compatible with HTML and runs on probably all browsers
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

It is used to test back-end components and behaviour and runs in server environments
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

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.

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

N/A

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 implement your stubs and mocks using a wru.assert(...) when necessary during a specific test.
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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