Invoke a code before the ViewInit in Ionic2

So I want to redirect to the profile page - if the user has already logged in once and I have some key on the localstorage.

I check for the key and redirect from the component constructor but still see a flash of the component’s view.

I tried to redirect then from the ngOnInit() and still the same behaviour.
I was checking Angular2 lifecycle methods and there is nothing like a ngBeforeViewInit() function.

I know Angular1 had that option on defining the states like to invoke something before the view loads. How are we implementing something like this in Ionic2 ??


You could put this behavior in the app.ts.
