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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

By using a third party library

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

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

N/A

Yes

It allows grouping of tests
