AVA vs Venus.js: 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; Venus.js: *Where bugs go to die *. It is a testing tool for JavaScript (JS), which simplifies running unit tests. When you are developing a browser-based project in JS, you'll want to create unit tests and run them frequently. Typically, you'll write a unit test using some library, such as Mocha or Jasmine. These libraries let you define testcases (or "specs" if you are following a BDD style), and provide APIs for writing assertions.

AVA and Venus.js belong to "Javascript Testing Framework" category of the tech stack.

AVA is an open source tool with 17.9K GitHub stars and 1.23K GitHub forks. Here's a link to AVA's open source repository on GitHub.

          What are some alternatives to AVA and Venus.js?
          Jest
          Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
          EVA
          Equipping you with hundreds of symbols and dozens or styles configurations, it makes sure the design stays consistent across all of your applications and platforms.
          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.
          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.
          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.
