Unit Testing

General info

QUnit is a JS Unit testing framework.

QUnit is especially useful for regression testing of jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile projects

Tyrtle is a Javascript unit testing framework that emphasises simplicity, cleanliness and expressiveness.

Tyrtle runs either in the browser or on NodeJS. In a CommonJS environment (eg: Node, or the browser running RequireJS), nothing is added to the global space, and with plain Javascript in the browser, only one variable is added to the window object. This keeps it clean and ensures that it won't interfere with your codebase.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Yes, it is a xUnit style framework

N/A

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

Yes

QUnit is commonly used by jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile It can test front-end components and functionality

Yes

Front-end pieces of code can be tested, you can test various components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Qunit can test any JavaScript code(including itself), this includes server-side components and functionality. Supports NodeJs

Yes

Back-end components and functions can be tested using tyrtle
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

By using the qunit-fixture element which is a container for some HTML that your tests can assert against.

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

You can group fixtures together with QUnit

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.

N/A

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)

You can use third party libraries like jQuery's Mockjax plugin

Yes

By using Myrtle, a sister project of Tyrtle which provides various Mocking features such as: -Mocking (spying and stubbing functions); -Mock function generation; -Timer manipulation-Speed profiling
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can use the QUnit.module() function to group tests together
