Browser Automation

General info

Javascript BDD (Behaviour Driven Development) based test runner/framework

Contextualised spec runner for JavaScript in the flavour of RSpec (Ruby Spec runner). JSSpec has got 2 really powerful features which helps you to make unit testing easier: 1) Shared examples 2) Shared contexts

Puppeteer is a Node library which provides browser automation for chrome and chromium

Puppeteer runs headless by default, but can be configured to run full (non-headless) Chrome or Chromium; It provides a high-level API to control Chromium or Chrome over the DevTools Protocol
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

JSSpec is primarily used for testing front-end/client-side components and functionality

Yes

Most things you can do manually in the browser can be done using puppeteer, therefore you can create a testing environment for your tests to run directly. You can test front-end functionality such as UI testing with puppeteer
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

No

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.

N/A

No

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

N/A

Apache License 2.0

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 has a module doubles (mocks/spies) for mocking and spying

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

No
