General info

Complete suite of testing facilities

Minitest is small, fast, and it aims to make tests clean and readable. It supports test-driven development (TDD), behavior-driven development (BDD), mocking, and benchmarking.

QUnit is a JS Unit testing framework.

QUnit is especially useful for regression testing of jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile projects
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

MiniTest is an xUnit style framework in that is has assertion functions in the style of xUnit/TDD

Yes

Yes, it is a xUnit style framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

No

Yes

QUnit is commonly used by jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile It can test front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test various back-end components

Yes

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Minitest supports test fixture functions

Yes

Yes

Allows grouping by nested Ruby classes. RSpec-like "context" method is available for spec syntax through the minitest-spec-context extension gem
