Category

Unit Testing

Browser Automation

General info

Randoop.NET is an API fuzzing unit test generator for .NET libraries.

Randoop.NET creates test cases by a sequence of API method calls and it improves on random and static test generation by incorporating feedback during test generation.

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
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Randoop.net is an xUnit style testing framework

No

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

Yes

You can test front-end components by testing individual front-end classes and modules

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
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components by testing individual back-end classes and modules

No

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.

N/A

No

Licence

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)

N/A

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can generate test suites with Randoop

No
