AVA vs Baretest: What are the differences?

AVA: A refined, futuristic test runner. Even though JavaScript is single-threaded, IO in Node.js can happen in parallel due to its async nature. AVA takes advantage of this and runs your tests concurrently, which is especially beneficial for IO heavy tests. In addition, test files are run in parallel as separate processes, giving you even better performance and an isolated environment for each test file; Baretest: A Minimalistic Alternative to Jest. It is a fast and simple JavaScript test runner. It offers near-instant performance and a brainless API. It makes testing tolerable.

AVA and Baretest can be categorized as "Javascript Testing Framework" tools.

AVA is an open source tool with 17.5K GitHub stars and 1.2K GitHub forks. Here's a link to AVA's open source repository on GitHub.

          Mocha is a feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on node.js and the browser, making asynchronous testing simple and fun. Mocha tests run serially, allowing for flexible and accurate reporting, while mapping uncaught exceptions to the correct test cases.
          Jasmine
