How to pass an explicit intent

I saw the intent documentation . In native land,its a cakewalk, but I cant figure out how to redirect the user from home.html to user.html on a click. This is what i have been doing and I get this:
Error: exec proxy not found for :: IntentShim :: startActivity
const options = {
action: this.webintent.ACTION_VIEW,
url: ‘user.html’,
type: ‘application/’

I found out the solution was push using the navController.
