General info

Specter is a behaviour-driven development framework for .NET and Mono

Specter enables behavior driven development (BDD) by allowing developers to write executable specifications for their objects, before actually implementing them, this is similar to test driven development however the different nomenclature makes it different from writing 'tests' for code that does not exist yet

Wallaby.js is an integrated continuous testing tool for JavaScript.

Wallaby.js runs your tests immediately as you change your code (you don’t even have to save the file) and reports code coverage and other results directly to your code editor. Its also uses various techniques such as dependency analysis to only execute tests affected by your code changes and parallel test execution to ensure your tests run as fast as possible.
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

Developers can create specfications of the expected front-end behaviours and test them

Yes

Wallaby.js can test front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes developers can create specfications of the expected back-end behaviours and test these.

Yes

Wallaby.js can test server behaviour and functionality
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

N/A

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

BSD 3-Clause 'New' or 'Revised' License

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)

N/A

By use of a third party library Jest works well with wallaby
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can create your own test suites with specter
