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

Tyrtle is a Javascript unit testing framework that emphasises simplicity, cleanliness and expressiveness.

Tyrtle runs either in the browser or on NodeJS. In a CommonJS environment (eg: Node, or the browser running RequireJS), nothing is added to the global space, and with plain Javascript in the browser, only one variable is added to the window object. This keeps it clean and ensures that it won't interfere with your codebase.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It supports xUnit output

N/A

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

No

Yes

Front-end pieces of code can be tested, you can test various 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

Back-end components and functions can be tested using tyrtle
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

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

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

By using Myrtle, a sister project of Tyrtle which provides various Mocking features such as: -Mocking (spying and stubbing functions); -Mock function generation; -Timer manipulation-Speed profiling
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.
