General info

Testoob is an advanced unit testing framework for Python.

Testoob integrates with existing unittest test suites. It contains many features like: a filter which tests to run with regular expressions, output test results as XML/HTML/PDF, test skipping, color output on a terminal and more.

BDD style testing framework for Go

Goconvey is a two pronged testing tool consisting of a test runner that watches your code for changes, runs 'go test' and renders your results in a web browser and the second a library that allows you to write BDD-style tests with standard 'go test' functions
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

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

Yes

Testoob can test front-end features since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function that is on the client side

Yes

Yes, Goconvey can perform front-end tests
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Testoob can test back-end functionality since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function in the back-end.

Yes

Yes one can perform end-to-end HTTP tests with goconvey to see how an application works against remote servers
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

TestOOB extends unittest and prepares fixtures by use of the 'setUp() function just like unittest

Yes

Yes, Goconvey uses scopes to define fixtures and a reset function for 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.

Yes

The 'setUp()' function allows you to group your initialization functions

Yes

One can define group fixtures using scopes
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

Yes

The web UI has a button to open the built in generator

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

Mocks are available - testoob can acess library unittest.mock which is used for mocking

Yes

Using the mock package or mockery library to autogenerate mock code
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

One can build suites with testoob

Yes

Similar to a table driven approach an entire suite can be contained in a single function
