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.

Javascript BDD (Behaviour Driven Development) based test runner/framework

Contextualised spec runner for JavaScript in the flavour of RSpec (Ruby Spec runner). JSSpec has got 2 really powerful features which helps you to make unit testing easier: 1) Shared examples 2) Shared contexts
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

JSSpec is primarily used for testing front-end/client-side components and functionality
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.

No

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

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)

N/A

Yes

It has a module doubles (mocks/spies) for mocking and spying
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
