Is there any proper autocomplete and/or syntax checker for CoffeeScript in vim?

This is not a very complex question but i cant seem to find anything. I am currently using YCM.

    Not sure about "proper", but syntastic does support linting with coffee and coffeelint. If you have suggestions for other linters post to the issue tracker.

    @lcd047 Well there are some guessing plugins. That are not strictly for coffeescript but sort of help and these help with the tags and autofilling not syntax

I don't code in CoffeeScript myself, but I've used vim-coffee-script for viewing files.

It doesn't support autocomplete, but it kind of provides syntax checking by compiling (showing the errors) and running coffeelint. I know it's kind of a stretch though.. maybe better than nothing?
