Claudia vs Mocha: What are the differences?

Claudia: Deploy Node.js microservices to AWS Lambda and API Gateway easily. Claudia helps you deploy Node.js microservices to Amazon Web Services easily. It automates and simplifies deployment workflows and error prone tasks, so you can focus on important problems and not have to worry about AWS service quirks; Mocha: Simple, flexible, fun javascript test framework for node.js & the browser. 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.

Claudia can be classified as a tool in the "Microservices Tools" category, while Mocha is grouped under "Javascript Testing Framework".

Some of the features offered by Claudia are:

  • Create or update Lambda functions and Web APIs from Node.js projects hassle-free
  • Automatically configure the Lambda function for commonly useful tasks
  • Automatically set up API Gateway resources the way Javascript developers expect them to work

On the other hand, Mocha provides the following key features:

  • browser support
  • simple async support, including promises
  • test coverage reporting

Claudia and Mocha are both open source tools. Mocha with 18.1K GitHub stars and 2.44K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Claudia with 3.21K GitHub stars and 221 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Mocha has a broader approval, being mentioned in 400 company stacks & 272 developers stacks; compared to Claudia, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

Decisions about Claudia and Mocha

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.

    Serverless
    Build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster. The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google CloudFunctions, and more.
    Alexa
    It is a cloud-based voice service and the brain behind tens of millions of devices including the Echo family of devices, FireTV, Fire Tablet, and third-party devices. You can build voice experiences, or skills, that make everyday tasks faster, easier, and more delightful for customers.
    Istio
    Istio is an open platform for providing a uniform way to integrate microservices, manage traffic flow across microservices, enforce policies and aggregate telemetry data. Istio's control plane provides an abstraction layer over the underlying cluster management platform, such as Kubernetes, Mesos, etc.
    Kong
    Kong is a scalable, open source API Layer (also known as an API Gateway, or API Middleware). Kong controls layer 4 and 7 traffic and is extended through Plugins, which provide extra functionality and services beyond the core platform.
    Zuul
    It is the front door for all requests from devices and websites to the backend of the Netflix streaming application. As an edge service application, It is built to enable dynamic routing, monitoring, resiliency, and security. Routing is an integral part of a microservice architecture.
