You can use the REST API to get the page content. For example, to get the content of this page:
Use this format:
The number "135922" is the unique page ID as generated by Confluence for each page. You can see it in the URL when you edit a page, for example.
However, the REST API returns the HTML plus Confluence-specific elements as used in the Confluence storage format. You'd need some way of parsing them and putting them into a pretty format.
Here's the documentation on the REST API:

Just adding in what Sarah said, you could try to use this third party plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.swift.confluence.acli
That Allow Atlassian CLI commands to be easily run from within Confluence. The Atlassian CLI provides actions for remotely accessing Atlassian products including Confluence, JIRA, Bamboo, Crucible, and FishEye. This enables administrators to document and run automation. This also enables administrators to provide selective automation capabilities to users using techniques like the Run macro. It is recommended that the Macro Security Plugin be used to control access to trusted users.
Is like a terminal.
Thanks, William. I know about the CLI. My need here is to use Confluence content outside Confluence, so the plugin isn't relevant. As for the CLI itself, I think it is for command line use, rather than use in a web page. Sarah's answer works better, although given that it returns XML it isn't really what I was looking for either (I'd like to be able to pass a parameter to render it into HTML, rather than having to do that myself. It may be, though, that this problem is a side-effect of getting rid of wiki markup -- the "HTML" (really XML) has gotten quite a bit more complicated, and reuse outside of the wiki is not easy.
Hallo again Jonathan
Oh wow, this could be what you need: Just add the URL parameter "decorator=printable".
I remembered it in the middle of the night. Someone gave me the hint a couple of years ago, when I was trying my hand at gadget development and needed some pretty page content without the chrome.
Hi jonathan! is this issue solved? I am having same problem for weeks. What I found is ... (if you are in any given confluence page) Tools>View Source Here you can get the URL, but it is not complete solution. it shows well page content without having macros. please re-touch with this issue. from JK
