    Is there a way to show only the views number, without anything else? I’d like to customise the text around the number myself.

    Yep, it’s possible. There are different ways to do that, but you could for example filter the output of the plugin, by adding a code snippet to your site using a functionality plugin. Here is the code snippet you could use to only display the number:

    
    /**
     * Customize the output of the post views counter.
     *
     * @see https://wordpress.org/support/topic/display-format/
     *
     * @param string $view    Original phrase outputting the number of views.
     * @param array  $views   Number of views.
     * @param string $post_id Post ID.
     *
     * @return string
     */
    function teeragit_custom_post_views_text( $view, $views, $post_id ) {
    	if ( ! empty( $views ) && isset( $views['total'] ) ) {
    		/*
    		 * Here we'll build a string
    		 * with a div container and the number of views inside,
    		 * as an example.
    		 * You can of course create your own string, with whatever html you want.
    		 */
    		return sprintf(
    			'<div class="teeragit_post_counter">%1$s</div>',
    			$views['total']
    		);
    	}
    
    	// Fallback to the original default text.
    	return $view;
    }
    add_filter( 'jp_post_views_output', 'teeragit_custom_post_views_text', 10, 3 );
    

    You can of course customize this to display things before or after the number.
