General info

stestr is a Python test runner designed to execute unittest test suites

stestr executes unittest test suites by using multiple processes to split up execution of a test suite then stores a history of all test runs to help in debugging failures and optimizing the scheduler to improve speed.

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
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

Stestr being a test runner that runs unittest tests, it can test fron-tend functionality and behaviour.

Yes

Allows for browser Automation and writing of end-to-end tests for web apps, supports Selenium WebDriver, ChromeDriver, and PhantomJS - GhostDriver
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Stestr being a test runner that runs unittest tests, it can run back-end tests for functionality and behaviour.

N/A

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

By use of a third party library like Fixture

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.

By use of a third party library like Fixture

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.

Yes

By using a library like test-generator

Yes

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