      Jasmine

      Jest
      Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
      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.
      Enzyme
      Enzyme is a JavaScript Testing utility for React that makes it easier to assert, manipulate, and traverse your React Components' output.
      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.

      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.
