General info

xUnit.net is aUnit testing framework for C# and .NET

xUnit.net is a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for the .NET Framework. It is used to test C#, F#, VB.NET and other .NET languages. xUnit.net and works with ReSharper, CodeRush, TestDriven.NET and Xamarin. It is part of the .NET Foundation,

Lighttest is a JavaScript unit-testing library — it works both in browsers and under Node.js, supports flow control, and is focused on keeping the tests clear.

Lighttest keeps tests clear by using a minimal syntax of the test cases, and the only testing function, lighttest.check(), is used to indicate a success or a failure. Any testing behaviour can be implemented using this function JavaScript natively meaning no additional testing API is required.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

xUnit.net is part of the xUnit family of frameworks

N/A

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

Yes

You can test various front-end components independently since it is a Unit testing framework

Yes

Light Test works in the browser to test client side components and behaviours
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test various back-end components independently since it is a Unit testing framework

Yes

Light Test works with NodeJs to test back-end environments behaviours and components in short it can test any behaviour in the back-end as well as the front-end
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

It contains class fixtures which are setup once pertest class

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.

Yes

xUnit.net contains collection fixtures which allow you to share context among many tests

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

Licence

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

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
