For various reasons you might want to deploy your API under a namespaced URL path. To support that tastypie includes NamespacedApi and NamespacedModelResource.

A sample definition of your API in this case would be something like:

from django.conf.urls import url, include
from tastypie.api import NamespacedApi
from my_application.api.resources import NamespacedUserResource

api = NamespacedApi(api_name='v1', urlconf_namespace='special')

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^api/', include(api.urls, namespace='special')),

And your model resource:

from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from tastypie.resources import NamespacedModelResource
from tastypie.authorization import Authorization

class NamespacedUserResource(NamespacedModelResource):
    class Meta:
        resource_name = 'users'
        queryset = User.objects.all()
        authorization = Authorization()
