Jasmine vs pytest: What are the differences?

What is Jasmine? DOM-less simple JavaScript testing framework. 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.

What is pytest? A full-featured Python testing tool to help you write better programs. A framework makes it easy to write small tests, yet scales to support complex functional testing for applications and libraries. It is a mature full-featured Python testing tool.

Jasmine and pytest are primarily classified as "Javascript Testing Framework" and "Testing Frameworks" tools respectively.

Jasmine and pytest are both open source tools. Jasmine with 14.4K GitHub stars and 2.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than pytest with 4.42K GitHub stars and 1.06K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Jasmine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 143 company stacks & 75 developers stacks; compared to pytest, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

Decisions about Jasmine and pytest

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 Jasmine and pytest?
      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.
      Jest
      Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
      Karma
      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.
      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.
      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.
