Browser Automation

General info

wru is an essential general purpose test framework compatible with web environment, node.js, Rhino, and now PhantomJS too.

wru is compatible with basically all possible browsers out there included IE5.5, IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Webkit based, Mobile Browsers, and Opera. On server side wru is compatible with latest node.js, Rhino, PhantomJS, and JavaScriptCore versions.

Puppeteer is a Node library which provides browser automation for chrome and chromium

Puppeteer runs headless by default, but can be configured to run full (non-headless) Chrome or Chromium; It provides a high-level API to control Chromium or Chrome over the DevTools Protocol
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Wru is compatible with xUnit

No

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

Yes

Wru tests front-end components and functions, it is compatible with HTML and runs on probably all browsers

Yes

Most things you can do manually in the browser can be done using puppeteer, therefore you can create a testing environment for your tests to run directly. You can test front-end functionality such as UI testing with puppeteer
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

It is used to test back-end components and behaviour and runs in server environments

No

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.

N/A

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)

You can implement your stubs and mocks using a wru.assert(...) when necessary during a specific test.

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

No
