Jasmine testing does not really do unit testing because all outbound HTML requests must be mocked, that bypasses a lot of the ability to perform a natural test on any component in my opinion.

With server side rendering each request is easily able to be tested using http requests only, which I would think is a lot better than Jasmine trying to do component testing.
