Category

Unit Testing

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

A set of golang packages that has many tools for testing Go code

Testify is a Go testing framework that has some great features like easier assertions, Test suite Interfaces, and Mocks
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, since it is also easily hooked to 'testing' package it is used to test front-end components
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 it can also be used to test back-end components and functionality
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.

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

Yes

Its 'mock' package has a mechanism for easily writing mock objects that are used in place of real objects
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.

Yes

Using the 'suite' package developers can build a test suite as a struct build teardown and setup methods as well as testing methods on the struct then run them with 'go test'
