Unit Testing

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

Rich testing framework for Go

Gocheck is a richer testing framework for Golang libraries and applications that includes checkers and assertions among many other features, it also works as an extension to the testing package and 'go test'
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

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

Yes, supports end-to-end testing so various front-end components can be tested
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

Yes end-to-end testing means that various back-end components and behaviour can be tested
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

Yes

Fixtures are available with Gocheck either per suite and/or per setup and teardown
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

Yes

Group fixtures are available as a suite
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

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)

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

Yes

Through third party libraries like gomock
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

When testing, developers can create suites of tests
