Nodeunit is a Nodejs testing framework that has Simple syntax, powerful tools. Nodeunit provides easy async unit testing for node.js and the browser.

Nodeunit was one of the first testing frameworks developed for node. It was very useful at the time, but there's an overwhelming number of other worthwhile testing solutions out there that are actively maintained. tap, ava, tape, mocha, jasmine, jest, ... the list goes on and on.
xUnit

Yes

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test
