It is quite similar, to be sure. Though the assertions are standard in my
experience with other test suites, I also strove for consistency with lunit.
The big differentiator for me was the ability to run the tests from the test
file itself, instead of requiring a shell script (that doesn't work on
Windows). That alone is why I wrote lunity.
I also create a dummy data table that is passed into setup() and each test
and teardown(), which is a very minor convenience.
I also was feeling a bit clever and allowed this syntax:
module( 'TEST_RUNTIME', lunity )
instead of lunit's:
module( "my_testcase", lunit.testcase )
