Karma vs Nemo.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Karma as "Spectacular Test Runner for JavaScript". Karma is not a testing framework, nor an assertion library. Karma just launches a HTTP server, and generates the test runner HTML file you probably already know from your favourite testing framework. So for testing purposes you can use pretty much anything you like. On the other hand, Nemo.js is detailed as "PayPal’s open source node.js automation framework". Nemo provides a simple way to add selenium automation to your NodeJS web projects. Provides plugin architecture to incorporate custom features to your tests.

Karma and Nemo.js can be primarily classified as "Browser Testing" tools.

Some of the features offered by Karma are:

  • Test on Real Devices
  • Remote Control
  • Testing Framework Agnostic

On the other hand, Nemo.js provides the following key features:

  • Nemo.js wraps around the ubiquitous Selenium WebDriver, and as such, allows control of virtually any browser on any operating system
  • Built with a plugin architecture
  • Easy interface for authoring new plugins that can then be shared with others

Karma and Nemo.js are both open source tools. It seems that Karma with 10.7K GitHub stars and 1.61K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Nemo.js with 5 GitHub stars and 4 GitHub forks.
