General info

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)

Standalone test stubs and mocks for JavaScript. Works with any unit testing framework.

Sinon.js is a great library when you want to unit test your code with supports spies, stubs, and mocks. The library has cross browser support and also can run on the server using Node.js.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

Compatible
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

Yes

Sinon.js is a good library for unit testing your front-end code and has cross browser support
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

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

Yes

Sinon.js can run on node.js to test back-end components and server-side behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

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.

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

Through the use of Python's mock library

Yes

SinonJS is basically a library that we can use to create object mocks for unit testing
Grouping
