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.

Suitest is a freemium test automation tool specially designed for Smart/AndroidApple TV, XBOX, PlayStation4 and websites

Suitest provides the codeless visual test editor on it's platform to easily create the automation scripts without any knowledge of programming languages. You can also see the version and result history. And Test execution is pretty fast
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

No, Since Suitest has a created custom framework service to test the apps on TV, Gaming consoles and website
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

Suitetest allows for testing front-end components and functionality, it is a browser automation tool after all.
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

Since it performs end-to-end testing this includes critical functionalities like database/server connections, communications and other server-side functionalities
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

Mocks are available
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

You can create suites in suitetest
