Is Vaadin 14 really ready for production?

Vaadin 14 itself is production ready, but just as you noted, the collection of available add-ons is still much smaller than Vaadin 8.
If your application is vitally dependant on an add-on that doesn't exist yet in Vaadin 14, but does in Vaadin 8, then the best decision would be to stay on Vaadin 8 for that project until such an add-on exists or you ported it to Vaadin 14 yourself.

But all this doesn't mean that Vaadin 14 isn't production ready yet. It's just that there can be some Project requirements that are not yet achievable with Vaadin 14. You need to give the community some time to provide more add-ons. When Vaadin 8 went production ready, there weren't as many add-ons available for it as there are now.
