Luke has been deprecated, and will be removed from the next release of
Riak. Examples of its use can be found in riak_kv (shortly, only
branches for 1.2 and earlier). But, no one is maintaining it.

Riak has migrated its dataflow uses to the riak_pipe project. Pipe is
more of a tool for actually processing data than a library for
describing abstract flows, and it assumes you're working with a
riak_core cluster. But, it's much better documented and includes
practical features like backpressure to help processing behave more
