QUnit was originally developed by John Resig as part of jQuery. In 2008 it got its own home, name and API documentation, allowing others to use it for their unit testing as well. At the time it still depended on jQuery. A rewrite in 2009 fixed that, and now QUnit runs completely standalone.
QUnit's assertion methods follow the CommonJS Unit Testing specification, which was to some degree influenced by QUnit.
