Teenytest is a simple, zero-config test runner for NodeJS

Teenytest's CLI will run tests with zero public-API and zero configuration
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

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

Yes

Turnip can perform end-to-end tests therefore test front-end components and functionality

No

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

Yes

Turnip is used to test server-side behaviour and components

Yes

Teenytest tests database connections and other server-side components and behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

Yes

It provides fixtures with the methods beforeAll(),afterEach() and afterAll()beforeAll() creates the browser and gives you a newPage() globalafterEach() will close any pages you created with newPage()afterAll() closes the browser
Group fixtures

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)

Yes

By intergrating with RSpec turnip has access to the rspec-mocks gem

N/A

Grouping
