General info

Puppeteer is a Node library which provides browser automation for chrome and chromium

Puppeteer runs headless by default, but can be configured to run full (non-headless) Chrome or Chromium; It provides a high-level API to control Chromium or Chrome over the DevTools Protocol

Lighttest is a JavaScript unit-testing library — it works both in browsers and under Node.js, supports flow control, and is focused on keeping the tests clear.

Lighttest keeps tests clear by using a minimal syntax of the test cases, and the only testing function, lighttest.check(), is used to indicate a success or a failure. Any testing behaviour can be implemented using this function JavaScript natively meaning no additional testing API is required.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

N/A

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Most things you can do manually in the browser can be done using puppeteer, therefore you can create a testing environment for your tests to run directly. You can test front-end functionality such as UI testing with puppeteer

Yes

Light Test works in the browser to test client side components and behaviours
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

Yes

Light Test works with NodeJs to test back-end environments behaviours and components in short it can test any behaviour in the back-end as well as the front-end
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

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.

N/A

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.

No

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)

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
