Goblin is a simple Mocha like BDD testing framework for Go

Goblin was inspired by the simplicity and flexibility of NodeBDD and offers many features like the ability to define as many Describe and It blocks as you want, colorful reports and beautiful syntax, running tests with the go test command as usual and more
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Yes, it is an xUnit style framework

No

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

Yes

Developers can test individual front-end components with XCTest

Yes

Yes, since it is a BDD driven framework, various front-end functionalities can be tested
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes, developers can test individual back-end components with XCTest

Yes

Yes back-end behaviour can be tested that is interactions with servers/databases
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

XCTest contains setup() and teardown() fixture methods for setting up and destroying test environments
