Add recently changed files to command-line interface

Helpful | Level 5

Given that "recently changed files" is currently broken on the linux GUI, could we have a "recent" command to the command-line interface?  You could have "dropbox recent" to get e.g. by default the last 10 changed files, or "dropbox recent 50" to get the last 50. This should be an easy feature to add.

How to do it in bash:

 

(cd ~/Dropbox && find . -mtime -1 -not -type d -exec ls -g --si --time-style="+%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M" {} \; | cut -d' ' -f5,6- | sort )
