Number one this week, Baretest is a minimalist testing framework for “developers who genuinely value performance and usability”.

It’s a very lightweight alternative of frameworks such as Jest, Mocha or Ava, the champions of the Testing category.

It has a compact API, it runs super fast according to the benchmarks and it adds only 16 kB to your node_modules folder.
