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.

Green is a clean, colorful, fast Python test runner

This is a test runner that has pretty printing on output that makes results easy to read and understand. Some of its features include: Tests running in independent processes (fast), low redundancy in output (clean), supports pretty printing that is the terminal output, makes good use of color when the terminal supports it (colorful)
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

It can test front-end components of the django framework
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

It can test server-side behaviours of web applications written with Python
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

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.

No

Lacks fixture management

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.

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

Yes

Through the use of Python's mock library
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

One can group tests
