Majestic GUI vs Mocha: What are the differences?

Majestic GUI: Zero config GUI for Jest. A GUI for Jest that allows you to run all the tests or a single file, toggle watch mode, update snapshots, and much more; 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.

Majestic GUI and Mocha can be primarily classified as "Javascript Testing Framework" tools.

Some of the features offered by Majestic GUI are:

  • Examine test failures as they happen
  • Console.log() to the UI for debugging
  • Search tests

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

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

Majestic GUI and Mocha are both open source tools. It seems that Mocha with 18.1K GitHub stars and 2.44K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Majestic GUI with 5.36K GitHub stars and 117 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Majestic GUI 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.

        What are some alternatives to Majestic GUI and Mocha?
        Jest
        Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
        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.
        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.
        Chai
        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.
        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.
