Acceptance Testing

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

Gauge is a light-weight cross-platform test automation tool for writing acceptance tests.

Gauge is a free and open source framework for writing and running acceptance tests. Some of its key features include: -Simple, flexible and rich syntax based on Markdown.; -Consistent cross platform/language support for writing test code.; -A modular architecture with plugins support.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

No

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

You can test front-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test front-end behaviour
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 test back-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test back-end behaviour
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

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

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

Yes

You can create mocks using third party libraries like moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

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

Yes

You can create test suites with Gauge which can be run using multiple parameters.
