General info

Test::Unit is a unit testing framework for Ruby

Test::Unit is an implementation of the xUnit testing framework for ruby which is used for Unit Testing. However Test::Unit has been left in the standard library to support legacy test suites therefore if you are writing new test code use Minitest instead of Test::Unit

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

test-unit is a xUnit family unit testing framework for Ruby

Yes

It is a xUnit style framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

It could have tested some front-end components but its now legacy hence wouldn't work with the many new front-end components

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Fixture methods are available through its ClassMethods Module

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

Group fixture methods are supported

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.

No

N/A

Licence

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)

No

You can use a third party library like mockito
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Yes
