From MVP to Production: When to launch a website?

I have created a Demo of the application I'm willing to launch but it was all developed using Backend (Flask) and most of the important things and details has to be done using Frontend technology that it would take like 8 months to have something decent. The webapp is fully functional there is only one feature I couldn't add, a upvote/downvote section.

My question is, should I launch what I have and then start improving the application while start learning thing like load balancing, database migrations, creating an API, etc? or should I finish everything and then launch?

Maybe put it on something like Github and then you can get feedback from other developers while working on the frontend parts.

Or do a Google and just slap a 'beta' tag on it for as long as you need/want! :)
