    Know any way of display popular posts by views without using any plugin? I am already using a plugin for this, but I would rather prefer to hard code it into my theme.

      You can just use a simple function to count the number of comments and display posts that way. To write that function for views, you are still going to have to deal with your DB (though some have done it using Google Analytics data).
