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

Suitest is a freemium test automation tool specially designed for Smart/AndroidApple TV, XBOX, PlayStation4 and websites

Suitest provides the codeless visual test editor on it's platform to easily create the automation scripts without any knowledge of programming languages. You can also see the version and result history. And Test execution is pretty fast
xUnit

Yes

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

No

No, Since Suitest has a created custom framework service to test the apps on TV, Gaming consoles and website
Client-side

No

N/A
