Qustion abut "the stackfiles"

You the splash get "messed-up" from occasional resave. 

Don't tell me how, but occasionally the path (which should be relative) becomes absolute

lib_calendar   libraries/lib_calendar.livecodescript  #which it should be


lib_calendary   /users/brahma/documents/myapp/libraries/lib_calendar.livecodescript  

plus you are changing files from time to time, so the stackfiles is obsolete.

We fixed this by starting with json files, which then sets the splash stackFiles on stack start up

    I’m setting up an application with a splash stack and lots of other stacks and libraries that are loaded by the splash stack. I am using “the stackfiles” of the splash stack to get the relative paths of the various stacks in the resources folder. I’m on LC 9.0.0(rc2), on Mac OS 10.12.3
    What I’m wondering is if there are any “gotchas” with using this method to get the relative paths to the various resource stacks. It seems like this may be the easiest way to adjust paths for the various deployment targets.
