Programming language

JavaScript

Python

Category

Unit Testing, unittest Extensions

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

Nose is a Python unit test framework

This is a Python unit test framework that intergrates well with doctests, unnittests, and 'no-boilerplate tests', that is tests written from scratch without a specific boilerplate.
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

nose is a unit testing tool which is very similar to unittest. It is basically unittest with extensions therefore just like unittest is can test front-end components and behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

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

Yes

Nose can test back-end components and functionality as small units. One can write tests for each function that provides back-end 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

Yes

nose supports fixtures at the package, module, class, and test case levels, so that initialization which can be expensive is done as infrequently as possible.
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

Yes

Group fixtures are allowed with nose, where a multitest state can be defined.
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.

Through use of third party libraries like test-generator and from the 'unittest.TestCase' library

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

The nose library extends the built-in Python unittest module therefore has access to unittest.mock
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

With nose it collects tests automatically and there’s no need to manually collect test cases into test suites.
