Is there a function in Drupal-7 that looks or searches for nodes that match some criteria (e.g. promoted nodes, published nodes, nodes of a specific content type), rather than using Views?

  • There isn't a single core function that can replace Views.

The closest thing that you get is EntityFieldQuery, which will allow you to construct a query that will yield the nodes that match the conditions.
