General info

TMF is a minimal testing tool for ruby

TMF is a very small testing tool, it's not even a gem, you just copy the code and you're done. it uses just two methods to test: assert and stub

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.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

It is compatible with xUnit and supportsxUnit XML output
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

No

Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components with TMF

Yes

Testdouble is primarily used to test server-side functions, behaviours and components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

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.

No

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

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)
