Unit Testing

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.

Kahlan is a full-featured BDD testing framework

It is a full-featured BDD testing framework that embraces the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) design principle. Kahlan makes it possible to write unit tests using the 'describe-it' syntax and requires at least PHP 5.5
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

Kahlan allows you to test front-end components and behaviour easily
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

Yes

You can test individual back-end components using Kahlan
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

Yes

Fixtures can be defined by use of 'setUp()'method and cleaned using the 'tearDown()'method
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

Yes

You can write group fixtures
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.

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

With Kahlan's stubbing system you are able to set stubs (like mocks) directly to your class methods (dynamic mocking)
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

Kahlan allows you to group tests syntactically using a closure syntax. It has describe and context methods for grouping
