Lettuce

https://pypi.org/project/lettuce/
Programming language

PHP

Python

Category

Unit Testing

Unit Testing, Acceptance Testing

General info

Atoum is a unit testing framework specific to the PHP language

Atoum is similar to SimpleTest and is designed to be implemented rapidly, simplify test development and allow for writing reliable, readable, and clear unit tests

Lettuce is a BDD testing tool for Python

Lettuce is a testing tool for Python which is inspired by Ruby's Cucumber that supports Gherkin. It can execute plain-text functional descriptions as automated tests for Python projects just like Cucumber does for Ruby
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

However It can generate xml results for behaviour tests xUnit style
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Autom can perform unit tests on various front-end components and behaviours

Yes

By integrating Lettuce with Selenium’s Python bindings, you have a robust framework for testing Django applications. It can test front-end behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Autom can perform unit tests on servers/back-end components

Yes

Lettuce can test various server and database behaviours and interactions
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

By using the 'given()' method to setup your environment

N/A

Group fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data for a group of tests (group-fixtures). This ensures specific environment for a given group of tests.

Yes

By using the 'given()' method to setup your environments

N/A

Generators
Supports data generators for tests. Data generators generate input data for test. The test is then run for each input data produced in this way.

N/A

Yes

By using a third party library
Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

Atoum License

Unknown

Mocks
Mocks are objects that simulate the behavior of real objects. Using mocks allows testing some part of the code in isolation (with other parts mocked when needed)

Yes

By use of autom mocks which are decoupled and easier to maintain

By adding the lettuce-tools library one has access to the Mock module to implement a configurable http REST mock.
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

By use of an extension for autom called blackfire which allows you to write blackfire test suites.

Yes

It allows grouping of tests
