General info

NUnit is an open-source unit testing framework for Microsoft .NET.

NUnit was Initially ported from JUnit. Tests can be run from a console runner, within Visual Studio through a Test Adapter or through 3rd party runners. Tests can be run in parallel and has Strong support for data driven tests. Unit supports multiple platforms including .NET Core, Xamarin Mobile, Compact Framework and Silverlight.

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.

Yes

Nunit is one of many programs in the xUnit family

Yes

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

Yes

You can test front-end components with NUnit since it is a Unit testing framework the application is isolated into diverse modules which are tested independently

Yes

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

Yes

You can test back-end components with NUnit, it is a Unit testing framework hence the application is isolated into diverse modules which are tested independently

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

Yes

NUnit contains the fixture methods SetUp to initialize your test environment and TearDown method to destroy a test environment

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 in NUnit

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)

Yes

You can create mock objects using the third party library moq

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

Yes

You can group tests into suites with NUnit

Yes

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