Unit Testing

General info

tap-producing test harness for node and browsers.

Tape API is a small superset of the node core assert module

csUnit is an open source unit testing tool for the .NET Framework

csUnit is designed to work with any .NET compliant language. It has specifically been tested with C#, Visual Basic .NET, Managed C++, and J#
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It does support xUnit output

Yes

csUnit is an xUnit type testing framework and follows xUnit concepts
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can write tests for any part of your front-end code to test any component or functionality

Yes

You can unit test front-end components of your applications with csUnit
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

With tape you can test any back-end component, behaviour and functionality after all it supports TAP (Test Anything Protocol)

Yes

You can unit test back-end components of your applications with csUnit
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

Tape contains only the essential features for making assertions on your code but there is a package called redtape that extends tape to give you beforeEach and afterEach functionality

Yes

csUnit has fixture methods such as setup and teardown methods
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.

No

Yes

Group fixtures are available in csUnit
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

Tape is a minimalistic framework that provides only essential features to make your assertions about your code

You can write your own mock objects manually
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Tape contains only the essential features for making assertions on your code

Yes

It contains recipes for combining several test assemblies into one test suite
