Programming language

Elixir

Python

Category

Browser Automation, Intergration Testing

Unit Testing

General info

Elixir library for browser automation and writing intergration tests

It is a front-end testing library that has support for: Selenium (Firefox, Chrome), ChromeDriver and PhantomJs. Also supports JavaScript applications and retries tests a few times before reporting errors

A Python unit testing framework modelled after unittest

Testify is modelled after unittest but has more features while still supporting unittest classes. It has more pythonic naming conventions, an better test runner output visually, a decorator-based approach to fixture methods among many other features
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

Allows for browser Automation and writing of end-to-end tests for web apps, supports Selenium WebDriver, ChromeDriver, and PhantomJS - GhostDriver

Yes

Front-end functionality and behaviour can be tested by Testify.
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

N/A

Yes

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

N/A

Yes

Fixture methods are supported and it follows a decorator based approach, that is they are written similar to decorators
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.

N/A

Yes

Group fixtures are supported
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.

Yes

Not inbuilt but by use of a third party library like ExopData

Yes

One can create generator methods to yield runnable test methods which will pick out the test methods from your TestCases, and then exclude any in any of your exclude_suites method.If there are any require_suites, it will then further limit itself to test methods in those suites.

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

Yes, through the use of a third party library like Mockery

Yes

It includes the turtle mock object library
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

Testify includes support for detecting and running test suites, grouped by modules, classes, or individual test methods.
