Cognitect test runner is the defacto tool Clojure deps projects on the command line and with CI servers. cljs-test-runner for ClojureScript deps projects, complementing the Cognitect test runner. Automatic discover of cljs.test based tests, so no configuration required.
Kaocha is a very feature rich test runner for Clojure and ClojureScript, BDD style cucumber tests, coverage and junit style reporting. Kaocha takes a little bit more effort to learn due to the additional features it provides.
