Code readability is an important factor, if the application development involves multiple teams; if the testing team is unable to read your test cases then they won't be able to test it. Jasmine resolves this issue by providing developers with an extremely simple and "human-friendly" syntax. See More
There are times where you don't want to open up a browser for screencaps, that is where CasperJS comes to use, it can render the page using its own rendering engine and take and save a screenshot for you, all via the commandline See More
QtWebKit is the rendering engine used by CasperJS. Keep in mind this is NOT the same rendering engine as Chrome; hence, if you want to be 100% sure of the results, you must run a Webkit browser (such as Chrome) yourself. See More
Karma eases out the UI testing process as you can test your code on all your devices let it be smartphones, tablets or your very own desktop. If you don't want all of that, you always have the option of headless testing using a PhantomJS instance. See More
Do most of your code using Eclipse, well, you're in bad luck. Karma doesn't have an eclipse plugin, though if you are a real die hard eclipse fan, you can see this little hack to be able to run Karma from inside Eclipse Link (Time of writing: July 2014) See More
In cases where you want (I know your test cases must be atomic) where you really really want your test cases to run in a specific order, maybe if the current one rely on those of previous case, you can use Qunit by setting QUnit.config.reorder = false and your test cases will run in the order you've provided. See More
Qunit, expects us to call the start() function before the Async function itself, and stop() after it stops. This can be a problem when you have no way of knowing, when your function will start or stop (your testing a number of dependent functions) See More
All frontend developers already know the ease that jQuery framework has brought to their lives, in handling DOM events and accessing elements. Since Qunit was built as a part of jquery (is even used by jQuery itself for unit testing) hence it makes testing of DOM elements a lot easier. See More
Do you prefer running your test cases from inside your IDE? well BusterJS will make that a lot difficult for you if not impossible. You'll have to run Buster using the good old way of spawning up a new terminal for running the tests. See More
Have your test cases written in another framework, want to use BusterJS to run the tests, then you're in luck. BusterJS can be easily wrapped around other test frameworks. If you need to know how to do it, here's a link that showing just that. See More
Don't have time to go through the lengthy process of opening up your browsers? BusterJS gives you the option of performing Headless tests. These are powered by PhantomJS; hence all your testing is done within the command line. See More
