You mean like Wowhead? Afaik (as well as it being the only legal way) they run an addon which collects data and writes it to saved variables. They then use an external application that reads the saved variables file and upload it to Wowhead.
Saved variables can only be written to when the UI "unloads", that is when you reload UI or log out. There's no allowed way to export data out of the game in real time.
Grab your sword and fight the Horde!
