General info

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

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

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

Yes

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

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

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

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

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

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.

N/A

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)

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

You can use a third party library like mockito
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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

Yes

Artos allows creation of test suites and they are run by use of a test script
