Here is a presentation of Microsoft Lists. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plshQSoe_OY

This product looks like a real winner. It's going to drive subscriptions to Office 365.

I want to learn how to feed Microsoft Lists from inside our VFP application.

there must (or should) be a REST API somewhere

Flashbacks to Silverlight, but since Sharepoint is underpinning this and it's part of the 365 ecosystem I doubt they'll pull the plug. Besides Graph you could probably use Flow or PowerApps to get information into the lists (not sure about querying though).

No the Microsoft Graph is top priority at Microsoft - it's not going away. Sharepoint has morphed a lot in recent years into a SAAS platform that is effectively hidden from users. But the graph APIs are separate from that although they might be manipulating data that ultimately lives in the Sharepoint (or whatever hybrid) sites that drive this.

I looked at this stuff a while ago and the complexity of the stuff that this addresses is quite mind boggling. I think as so many things Microsoft they build for these insane specialty use cases that apparently a lot of Enterprise customers are clamoring for.

Microsoft Enterprise APIs have always been a pain in the ass though. Overly complex, brittle and constantly changing (more like breaking completely) and always chasing something new and shiny. Meh... but I guess it depends on what types of integrations you build. Somebody must be using this horribly complex shit one would think...
