Initial Jasmine impressions

Ok, I must confess that midway into my half-baked project of comparing Javascript testing frameworks, I’m getting a little bored with the entire project. Largely this is due to the fact that of the three major BDD-oriented frameworks I’ve seen so far, the syntax and semantics are roughly the same. Really the only major difference I’ve seen so far is that Mocha warns me about global namespace pollution, and the other frameworks do not.

As a point of reference, I was able to take the nascent set of tests I’d come up with for BusterJS and port them over virtually unchanged to Jasmine, with a few simple syntax changes relating to the setup / teardown methods. I’ll probably finish out the tests in one framework or the other and then move on to more interesting things, like figuring out the whole module mess that seems to be the current state of the art.
