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

stestr is a Python test runner designed to execute unittest test suites

stestr executes unittest test suites by using multiple processes to split up execution of a test suite then stores a history of all test runs to help in debugging failures and optimizing the scheduler to improve speed.
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

Stestr being a test runner that runs unittest tests, it can test fron-tend functionality and behaviour.
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

Yes

Stestr being a test runner that runs unittest tests, it can run back-end tests for functionality and behaviour.
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

Yes

By use of a third party library like Fixture
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

By use of a third party library like Fixture
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

Yes

By using a library like test-generator
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 has a module doubles (mocks/spies) for mocking and spying

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
