What is Karma?
Karma is not a testing framework, nor an assertion library. Karma just launches a HTTP server, and generates the test runner HTML file you probably already know from your favourite testing framework. So for testing purposes you can use pretty much anything you like.
Karma is a tool in the Browser Testing category of a tech stack.
Karma is an open source tool with 11.5K GitHub stars and 1.7K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Karma's open source repository on GitHub
