Trial is not really a stand-alone unit test framework. It is an extension to unittest focused on the testing needs for the Twisted framework.

The Trial how-to [link ] has some information. More valuable, perhaps are the API documents [link ].

Because of the asynchronous nature of Twisted, the Fixture pattern has a rather complex relationship with the Twisted Reactor. Also, since Twisted is a framework, not a single application, components are optional, and the TestSuite pattern is implemented with considerably more flexibility.
