Category

Browser Automation, Intergration Testing

Unit Testing

General info

Elixir library for browser automation and writing intergration tests

It is a front-end testing library that has support for: Selenium (Firefox, Chrome), ChromeDriver and PhantomJs. Also supports JavaScript applications and retries tests a few times before reporting errors

Tyrtle is a Javascript unit testing framework that emphasises simplicity, cleanliness and expressiveness.

Tyrtle runs either in the browser or on NodeJS. In a CommonJS environment (eg: Node, or the browser running RequireJS), nothing is added to the global space, and with plain Javascript in the browser, only one variable is added to the window object. This keeps it clean and ensures that it won't interfere with your codebase.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

N/A

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Allows for browser Automation and writing of end-to-end tests for web apps, supports Selenium WebDriver, ChromeDriver, and PhantomJS - GhostDriver

Yes

Front-end pieces of code can be tested, you can test various components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

N/A

Yes

Back-end components and functions can be tested using tyrtle
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

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.

N/A

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

Not inbuilt but by use of a third party library like ExopData

N/A

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

GNU GPL

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

Yes, through the use of a third party library like Mockery

Yes

By using Myrtle, a sister project of Tyrtle which provides various Mocking features such as: -Mocking (spying and stubbing functions); -Mock function generation; -Timer manipulation-Speed profiling
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
