I took at look into charva, I see some bindings there, but the binding code looks quite complex.

I also have take a look into https://github.com/mabe02/lanterna that seems to have some kind of bindings, too. I have found any c bindings yet.

Even people did work incharva and lanterna, the projects seem pretty old and unmaintained and the bindings look complex.

Is it difficult to create a lightweight wrapper between curses and java in your opinion?

Python and even a newer language golang have bindings for curses and java hasnt, its a shame.

Can we do something for it? I would develop the java part for it and possible the c part with some help from you.

no bindings to (n)curses?
Someone did this a while back, i.e., "charva".
