General info

JasUnit is a slim unit testing framework for JavaScript, following the general design principles of xUnit.

For testing your code, JasUnit allows you to: Create test fixtures with any number of test methods; Implement setup() and teardown() methods which are run before and after each test; Specify a namespace for a fixture for easy organisation of tests; Use the default or custom logger (default appends results to a given element); Use assertions from any scope - this isn't necessary or even really advised, but some people prefer it.

BDD driven testing framework for Elixir

It is a testing framework written from scratch which is inspired by RSpec and the main idea is to close to its perfect DSL (Domain Specific Language)
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

JasUnit follows the general design principles o xUnit

No

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

Yes

JasUnit is primarily used to test front-end code and functionality

Yes

Front-end components can be tested; there is also espec_phoenix for the Phoenix web framework
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

Yes

databases and server behaviour can be tested using Espec
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

With JasUnit you can Create test fixtures with any number of test methods Implement setup() and teardown() methods which are run before and after each test

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

JasUnit allow you to create group fixtures

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

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

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

It provides inbuilt Mocking capabilities

Yes

It has a Built-in mocking functionality on top of Erlang 'meck' library
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

By use of context blocksand tags functions
