I am wanting to build a tool for my own use, and possibly others in the future, is there any way for me to access a tableau table that is hosted at a given url?

I want to be able to rip the data from it and use it to do my own calculations. Does Tableau have way to do this or are there any neat tricks in the community?

(I am a dev so feel free to be as technical as possible)
