General info

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

Peridot is a lightweight, extensible testing framework for PHP

It features an event-driven architecture that allows testers to easily customize the framework via plugins and reporters, and uses the 'describe-it', syntax making the testing language clear and readable
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

However It can generate xml results for behaviour tests xUnit style

No

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

Yes

By integrating Lettuce with Selenium’s Python bindings, you have a robust framework for testing Django applications. It can test front-end behaviour

Yes

Front-end components can be tested with Peridot
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Lettuce can test various server and database behaviours and interactions

Yes

Back-end componets and behaviours can be tested as small units
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

Peridot has several methods that allow one to create and define fixtures
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

Yes

By using a third party library

N/A

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)

By adding the lettuce-tools library one has access to the Mock module to implement a configurable http REST mock.

Peridot does not include mocking out of the box but there are some great tools like 'Mockery' and 'Prophecy' which Peridot intergrates very well with
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

It allows grouping of tests

Yes

By use of describe and context blocks and it has a Runner which is responsible for running a given Suite.
