General info

Doctest is an inbuilt test framework for Python

Doctest is a test framework that comes prepackaged with Python. It is a simple library with a functionality that makes it possible to search for pieces of text that look like interactive Python sessions and executes these sessions to see if they work exactly as shown.

Atata is a C# / .NET test automation framework for web

Atata is an open source test framework that uses fluent object pattern. It consists of the following concepts: components (controls and page objects), attributes of the control search, settings attributes, triggers, verification attributes and methods
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

You can use Atata with xUnit frameworks
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Atata is based on selenium and is used for browser automation. You can test various front-end functionalities and behaviours
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

Lacks fixture management which can make writing tests harder

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.

No

Lacks fixture management

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.

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)

A good external library for using Mocks with Doctest is minimocks

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

One can group tests
