Is there a way to export from Lyx to Latex using the CLI so that in only writes to stdout, and not to a file?


No this is not currently possible. You can make a feature request here. It might make sense to implement it for the -E option. So you could do something like lyx -E latex - yourfile.lyx, where - means output to STDOUT. I think that's consistent with what some Unix commands do (e.g. wget).

So in the meantime, you will have to output to a file and then cat that file to command you want to pipe to.

Note that the OP posted an enhancement that can be followed here.
