PHP variable shortcut?

Is there a shorter way to say this? In my header, I have this:

$white1 = '/~jonathan/www/index.php';
$white2 = '/';
echo ($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']); 

And here is how I am processing it:

if (
(($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) == $white1) 
(($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) == $white2)
echo 'custom-class'; 

I'd also like it to have a $white3 and $white4 that allow for ?lang=en

When there are a handful of options I want to match against, I like to use in_array like this,

$options = array(
if(in_array($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], $options)) {
  echo 'custom-class'

This method makes it easy to add to the list of $options without changing the payload or adding anything more than a single entry as needed. I like to keep the array sorted to make entries easy to find and keep it clean.

You can do this using in_array:

if (in_array($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], [$white1, $white2])) echo 'custom-class';

Of course you can define your array of matches before.

Put all variables in an array and check if $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] is in the array.


$w = ['/~jonathan/www/index.php', '/'];

if (in_array($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], $w))
    echo 'custom-class';
