General info

Lighttest is a JavaScript unit-testing library — it works both in browsers and under Node.js, supports flow control, and is focused on keeping the tests clear.

Lighttest keeps tests clear by using a minimal syntax of the test cases, and the only testing function, lighttest.check(), is used to indicate a success or a failure. Any testing behaviour can be implemented using this function JavaScript natively meaning no additional testing API is required.

Randoop.NET is an API fuzzing unit test generator for .NET libraries.

Randoop.NET creates test cases by a sequence of API method calls and it improves on random and static test generation by incorporating feedback during test generation.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

Yes

Randoop.net is an xUnit style testing framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Light Test works in the browser to test client side components and behaviours

Yes

You can test front-end components by testing individual front-end classes and modules
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Light Test works with NodeJs to test back-end environments behaviours and components in short it can test any behaviour in the back-end as well as the front-end

Yes

You can test back-end components by testing individual back-end classes and modules
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.

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)

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
