Jest vs Mocha vs QUnit





What is Jest?

Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.

What is 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.

What is QUnit?

QUnit is a powerful, easy-to-use JavaScript unit testing framework. It's used by the jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile projects and is capable of testing any generic JavaScript code, including itself!

      Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
      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.
      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.
      Enzyme is a JavaScript Testing utility for React that makes it easier to assert, manipulate, and traverse your React Components' output.
      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.

            Review ofJestJest

            I'm using Jest for 3 months in a Vue JS project . I need to use a lot of custom search of related topics in jest docs because it's not clear. The examples are very poor too.

            Jest is my unit-testing tool of choice.

            Almost all unit testing suites (Mocha, Jasmine, etc.) are more or less the same.

            The main advantage I guess, is that it integrates pretty well with React and Enzyme.

            Used for unit testing when working with Node.js. Used over other testing frameworks because of good compatibility with TypeScript and ts-node.

            javascript 테스트를 위해 써본 프레임워크 이다. 초반 유명한 프레임워크중 하나였는데 요즘은 너무 테스트 프레임워크도 다양해져 잘 모르겠다. junit 에게는 hamcrest 이 있다면 mocha 에게는 chai가 있다.

            Mocha is ideal for running tests on apis built with Node's Express
