Chai vs Jasmine: What are the differences?

What is Chai? A BDD / TDD assertion library. It is a BDD / TDD assertion library for node and the browser that can be delightfully paired with any javascript testing framework. It has several interfaces that allow the developer to choose the most comfortable. The chain-capable BDD styles provide an expressive language & readable style, while the TDD assert style provides a more classical feel.

What is Jasmine? DOM-less simple JavaScript testing framework. 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.

Chai and Jasmine can be categorized as "Javascript Testing Framework" tools.

Chai and Jasmine are both open source tools. Jasmine with 14.4K GitHub stars and 2.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Chai with 6.39K GitHub stars and 575 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Jasmine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 143 company stacks & 75 developers stacks; compared to Chai, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

Decisions about Chai and Jasmine

We use Mocha for our FDA verification testing. It's integrated into Meteor, our upstream web application framework. We like how battle tested it is, its' syntax, its' options of reporters, and countless other features. Most everybody can agree on mocha, and that gets us half-way through our FDA verification and validation (V&V) testing strategy.

      Matcha
      Matcha is a package for building iOS and Android applications and frameworks in Go. Matcha provides a UI component library similar to ReactNative and exposes bindings to Objective-C and Java code through reflection. The library also provides Go APIs for common app tasks.
      Jest
      Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
      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.
