Poltergeist vs unittest : What are the differences?

Developers describe Poltergeist as "A PhantomJS driver for Capybara". Poltergeist is a driver for Capybara. It allows you to run your Capybara tests on a headless WebKit browser, provided by PhantomJS. On the other hand, *unittest * is detailed as "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.

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

Poltergeist is an open source tool with 2.53K GitHub stars and 436 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Poltergeist's open source repository on GitHub.
