I don't want to learn qlik, i just want its data. What are best practices to just get data out of qlik sense into universal formats programmatically?

Hi. I'm a data scientist who needs data out of qlik that my company put into it.  I have no professional interest in learning of all the great things it can supposedly do in qlik, i just want its data.  I've spent several days suffering through the non-REST API interfaces and  am absolutely not impressed. 

I *don't* want to pull out data from csv exports via the GUI (obviously). 

Where are the best practice guides for accessing cubes/tables/database/whatever you call them to out into json/csv/ obvious universal formats?

Tremendous thanks in advance!

If you have the data in the apps (qvf) and not in a qvd database, use the binary load and the use the Store command to export it to txt.

Store <tablename> into <path> (txt, delimiter is ';')
