I was recently starting to setup my usual alias. I ended up needing to pass more information than my alias originally needed

$ alias runserver = 'python runserver'
$ runserver 80  // turns out you need sudo
$ sudo runserver 80
$ sudo: runserver: command not found

Now as I was writing this i realized maybe the alias isn't set for root. Could that be it?

If not, could someone explain why this doesn't work.

Please and thank you
