Unit Testing

General info

An assertion library for JavaScript (similar to chai.js)

It works with any test runner and unit testing framework like Mocha, Jasmine, Karma, protractor (E2E test framework for Angular apps) and QUnit.

Doctest is an inbuilt test framework for Python

Doctest is a test framework that comes prepackaged with Python. It is a simple library with a functionality that makes it possible to search for pieces of text that look like interactive Python sessions and executes these sessions to see if they work exactly as shown.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

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

Yes

Unit.js runs in the browser to test front-end components

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

Yes

Unit.js runs in nodejs to test server-side behaviour

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

Yes

Unit.js provides Test fixtures for running testsThis is one of its features

No

Lacks fixture management which can make writing tests harder
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

With Unit.js you can group your fixtures

No

Lacks fixture management
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.

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)

N/A

A good external library for using Mocks with Doctest is minimocks
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

One can group tests
