General info

mocha-parallel-tests is a test runner for tests written with mocha testing framework.

mocha-parallel-tests allows you to run your tests in parallel and executes each of your test files in a separate process while still maintaining the output of mocha

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

Yes

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

Yes

Mocha-parallel-tests Runs in the browser and is used widely to test front-end components and functionality. It can test various DOM elements, front-end functions and so on.

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Mocha-parallel-tests provides convenient ways of testing the Node server.

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Mocha, which is the the framework which mocha-parallel-tests runs provides the hooks before(), after(), beforeEach(), and afterEach() to set up preconditions and clean up after your tests

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.

Yes

Group fixtures are available

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)

Provides Mocking capabilities through third party Libraries like sinon.js, simple-mock and nock

You can use a third party library like mockito
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Grouping is supported and is accomplished by the using a nested 'describe()'

Yes

Artos allows creation of test suites and they are run by use of a test script
