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.

Nodeunit is a Nodejs testing framework that has Simple syntax, powerful tools. Nodeunit provides easy async unit testing for node.js and the browser.

Nodeunit was one of the first testing frameworks developed for node. It was very useful at the time, but there's an overwhelming number of other worthwhile testing solutions out there that are actively maintained. tap, ava, tape, mocha, jasmine, jest, ... the list goes on and on.
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

N/A

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

No

Yes

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

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

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.

N/A

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.
