.... Oh no, not another one of these decisions
On the one hand I want to hire a lot of developers to my product
On the other hand Svelte is much better
Sorry to troll, I do find myself thinking about it alot, if I wrote a product today and I choose what I perseve to be the best stack I can offer my customer, would it be anywhere near to popular enough to hire people? And what does that say about the industry, we are fans of a good trend?

Gosh I couldn't agree with what you're saying here more. Bravo Jared.
Anyway when I first started, I got a lot of feedback about how I should have write it in react and often developers would join the team but not contribute because it was not React based.
I think your right, my gripe is probably around proprietary stuff is is terrifyingly pervasive.
Thinking about two cases,
Material design to spread the word of Google
Although I'm not sure what Facebook gets out of react?
Anyway interesting topic
I really don't have good advice for you but consider this. What if you had 10 React devs you could attain, but just 1 Svelte. But the Svelte one was far superior of a dev and also jelled with your sensibilities better. I think having a single kindred spirited studmuffin would serve you better then 10 mediocre devs (I'm totally not saying this is what would happen or that React devs are mediocre!). But the reason I think of this is that while there are obviously much less folks in Svelte at the moment, there are a lot of devs keen on Svelte and/or looking for opportunities to sling it. Maybe it'd even be a differentiator for you I dunno.
But yeah, all speculative from me here haha.
Good luck Adam!
As a consultant, I see all sorts of stacks on an hourly basis during the day, React, Vue, Angular never Svelte or Stencil which is so sad they are both compilers with amazing powers and I really enjoy working with them. I ended up using Svelte and I hope it pays of in case my product did actually sell and I became a millionaire 😀
If you can make some money building from software you should definitely go for it! ⭐ 😄 🍰 Good luck and if you become a millionaire you can probably corporate sponsor you're favorite OSS and still be making a huge community contribution 💪
