unittest vs Kahlan: What are the differences?

unittest : A unit testing framework for Python. It is python’s xUnit style framework. It works much the same as the other styles of xUnit, and if you’re familiar with unit testing in other languages, this framework (or derived versions), may be the most comfortable for you; Kahlan: A full-featured Unit & BDD test framework. It is a full-featured Unit & BDD test framework a la RSpec/JSpec which uses a describe-it syntax and moves testing in PHP one step forward.

unittest and Kahlan can be primarily classified as "Testing Frameworks" tools.

Some of the features offered by unittest are:

  • Python’s xUnit style framework
  • Supports test automation
  • Aggregation of tests into collections

On the other hand, Kahlan provides the following key features:

  • RSpec/JSpec syntax
  • Code Coverage metrics (xdebug or phpdbg required)
