Relative IRI in @context?

 This may be a quick thread since perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but...

 I'd like to use a relative URI in @context. As in,


 "@context": "context.jsonld",

 "@graph": [ ... rest of the jsonld ... ]


When I use the jsonld command line tool from the node package I get

'jsonld.NormalizeError: Could not convert input to RDF dataset before

 The file is otherwise valid JSON and it works when I stick in a
fully-qualified IRI.

context.jsonld is a file on the local file system. Is there a better
way to specify it? I've also served it via python's simple http server
but also no luck using a relative IRI in @context.

 Use case is pretty straightforward in terms of sharing a context
among many files in a directory that can easily be served by just it
on a server. I do not want to have to set up a permanent IRI for the
context as that would mean it couldn't move with the files.

 Or am I doing something obviously wrong?
