AVA vs Enzyme: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Enzyme? JavaScript Testing utilities for React, by Airbnb. Enzyme is a JavaScript Testing utility for React that makes it easier to assert, manipulate, and traverse your React Components' output.

AVA and Enzyme can be primarily classified as "Javascript Testing Framework" tools.

AVA and Enzyme are both open source tools. It seems that Enzyme with 17.5K GitHub stars and 1.93K forks on GitHub has more adoption than AVA with 16.5K GitHub stars and 1.08K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Enzyme has a broader approval, being mentioned in 52 company stacks & 32 developers stacks; compared to AVA, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

          What are some alternatives to AVA and Enzyme?
          Jest
          Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
          Mocha
          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
          Jasmine is a Behavior Driven Development testing framework for JavaScript. It does not rely on browsers, DOM, or any JavaScript framework. Thus it's suited for websites, Node.js projects, or anywhere that JavaScript can run.
          Cypress
          Cypress is a front end automated testing application created for the modern web. Cypress is built on a new architecture and runs in the same run-loop as the application being tested. As a result Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Cypress works on any front-end framework or website.
          Protractor
          Protractor is an end-to-end test framework for Angular and AngularJS applications. Protractor runs tests against your application running in a real browser, interacting with it as a user would.
