Category

General info

Teenytest is a simple, zero-config test runner for NodeJS

Teenytest's CLI will run tests with zero public-API and zero configuration

Buster.JS is a JavaScript test framework for node and browsers.

Buster.JS is a new JavaScript testing framework. It does browser testing by automating test runs in actual browsers (think JsTestDriver), as well as Node.js testing. It has a bunch of great features.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It supports xUnit output

Yes

Buster.Js is a xUnit style Test Framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

No

Yes

It does browser testing with browser automation, QUnit style static HTML page testing, testing in headless browsers and more front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Teenytest tests database connections and other server-side components and behaviour

Yes

It is a Node.js testing toolkit as well which means it can test back-end behaviour and functionality as well as run in a server environment
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

It provides fixtures with the methods beforeAll(),afterEach() and afterAll()beforeAll() creates the browser and gives you a newPage() globalafterEach() will close any pages you created with newPage()afterAll() closes the browser

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

Teeny test supports grouping of fixtures

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.

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

Buster.JS ships with Sinon.JS. every test in a test case has a sandbox associated with it, making it easy to mock and stub
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Grouping is supported through nested tests in which any object can contain any combination of hooks, test functions, and additional sub-test objects.
