|script.aculo.us unit testing
So apparently there are people that are trying to solve this problem, but how do you choose between all of these frameworks?
I chose JSSpec because it uses the behavior driven development terminology that I’ve become accustomed to recently. Screw-Unit also is BDD-based but it didn’t seem to be as straight-forward. QUnit is a newer framework that was originally designed by the jQuery folks as a framework for testing jQuery. I used QUnit on a real project for a client and it got the job done. QUnit seems to be the most talked about of the frameworks just because people find it when their on the jQuery site. (FWIW, QUnit doesn’t have any integration with jQuery that makes it any easier to use than the others.) YUI Test is used with the Yahoo UI framework, so if you’re using the YUI framework, YUI Test may be a good fit for you. People that use YUI Test seem to have a lot of good things to say about it.
