Suitest is a freemium test automation tool specially designed for Smart/AndroidApple TV, XBOX, PlayStation4 and websites

Suitest provides the codeless visual test editor on it's platform to easily create the automation scripts without any knowledge of programming languages. You can also see the version and result history. And Test execution is pretty fast
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

No

No, Since Suitest has a created custom framework service to test the apps on TV, Gaming consoles and website
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Suitetest allows for testing front-end components and functionality, it is a browser automation tool after all.

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

Yes

Mocks are available
Grouping
