Querying sharepoint lists and libraries

Gene Klamerus
Last Modified: 2018-01-23
Is there not some web service or worst case library based API to query sharepoint lists and libraries similar to SQL?

I’ve only been able to find fairly obtuse ways of doing this and in reality the basis for these are sql server relational dB tables.

And I do mean querying to sharepoint not the tables behind it.  I have SP Online sites and I only have acces to SP not the DB behind it.
