General info

kotest is a powerful, elegant and flexible test framework for Kotlin, formerly known as kotlintest

Kotest has excellent support for data driven testing or table driven testing where it has the ability to quickly rerun the same test over and over with a predefined set of inputs and expected values

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

You can test front-end components with kotest

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

Yes, you can test back-end components with kotest

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

kotest contains fixtures, that is the setup / teardown functions

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

kotest has group fixtures available

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

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

You can use a third party library like mockk to create mocks

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

You can create test suites with kotest

Yes

It allows grouping of tests
