Canvas Data Authentication Questions

So...I've watched the and read the official How Do I Generate Canvas Data API Credentials? and watched Getting Started with Canvas Data

I've read James Jones's very detailed post Canvas Data API Authentication

I tried to install the CanvasDataCLI tool but we are on ubuntu so it's going to take a bit of work to get the necessary version of nodejs installed.

 

But I still have no idea how to download the data except through the UI, which only gives me 5 days worth and requires the download of 50+ files.  I'm guessing that there isn't a way to do this via postman etc, that I need to do this via a web server using php or other scripting language?  Is it supposed to be this hard to download CSV files?  Am I missing something???
