Unit Testing

General info

This library was designed to work for both Node.js and browser interpreters and it encourages the TDD (Test Driven Development)

Test doubles can be used with conjuction of other test frameworks such as Jasmine, Jest, Chai, QUnit, Mocha, Tape etc.

Rich testing framework for Go

Gocheck is a richer testing framework for Golang libraries and applications that includes checkers and assertions among many other features, it also works as an extension to the testing package and 'go test'
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It is compatible with xUnit and supportsxUnit XML output

No

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

No

Yes

Yes, supports end-to-end testing so various front-end components can be tested
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Testdouble is primarily used to test server-side functions, behaviours and components

Yes

Yes end-to-end testing means that various back-end components and behaviour can be tested
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

Yes

Fixtures are available with Gocheck either per suite and/or per setup and teardown
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.

N/A

Yes

Group fixtures are available as a suite
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

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)

Yes

Testdouble includes inbuilt support for mocking

Yes

Through third party libraries like gomock
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

When testing, developers can create suites of tests
