I think it is unfortunate that the languages haven't learned to make this an integral part of the language.

D made it possible for unittests to become examples, included in the generated documentation. Though uncompiled examples could also be added.

 * Returns the sum of 2 numbers
auto sum(int a, int b) {
  return a + b;
unittest {
    assert(sum(1, 2) == 3);

Python's doctest is very standard, and can be integrated with pytest. TIL it comes to JavaScript, though.
