Rich testing framework for Go

Gocheck is a richer testing framework for Golang libraries and applications that includes checkers and assertions among many other features, it also works as an extension to the testing package and 'go test'
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It supports xUnit output

No

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

No

Yes

Yes, supports end-to-end testing so various front-end components can be tested
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

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

Yes

Yes end-to-end testing means that various back-end components and behaviour can be tested
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes
